Questions for 2008 Presidential Candidates - v.1

We are still a long way from the next Presidential election, yet the posturing has already begun. This got me thinking, what questions would I like to see the candidates answer? Here is draft 1. Surely current events, political antics, and 'Bush Derangement Syndrome' will bring about more questions?

- If not, how should the NSA be able to obtain these warrants in a timely fashion taking into account that there are over 200,000 suspected terrorists that the NSA wants to listen to and also taking into account that only 8,000 warrants have been issued in the last couple of years?

Are you for opening some of the many closed areas of the US to oil drilling?
