PAY GAP: SOLDIERS V. PRIVATE MILITARY CONTRACTORS.

Okay, so maybe I'm warming up to the reality show. That's because of the mother of a soldier serving in Iraq who asked what the candidates would to the close the pay gap between her son -- who makes around $30,000 -- and the contractors, whom she cited as making more than $100,000 for their work in Iraq. Bill Richardson gave a serviceable answer about ending the war, but the question begs an answer from Congress.
