1) One of your key advisors, Cofer Black, is a VP at Blackwater USA, the contracting firm recently accused of fatally shooting civilians in Iraq. As president, how would you respond to potential demands from the Iraqi government to remove or disarm civilian contractors working with us in Iraq?

2) A recent Pew poll shows that the public finds you lacking in energy, toughness, and down-to-Earthedness, yet you've spent as much money as any other candidate to promote yourself. How can you convince voters that you do have the energy and toughness necessary to be president?

3) Traditional Mormon views can make people uncomfortable, especially Christian Conservatives, minorities, and women. How can you prove that you do not hold other Christian and non-Christian beliefs in a bad light? What's your take on racial and gender equality?
