BE get an interrupt which nowadays who doesnt want another one of those? and the same ability gives them some mana back...which we already have a fair amount of through other abilities

Not everyone is 12 years old ya know.
Okay. Tauren have their health boost. Nice, but not hugely useful for PvE. Almost all bosses are immune to War Stomp. Herbalism bonus is rather meh - lifebloom's pretty nice now, seeing as we love ourself some haste, but there's going to be little (if any? I'm not even sure if the higher skill has an impact) difference. War Stomp is okay if you're on trash, but all it's going to do in a best case scenario is buy your healing two seconds or so of rest.
Blood Elves get their magic resists - honestly, a more helpful survival boost than Tauren's health in this not-always-topped-up world of Cataclysm. Arcane Torrent can silence/interrupt a lot of bosses, and while Rebuke is nice, sometimes you might needa do two interrupts in under 10 seconds. The mana return also means you might be able to let off a consecrate you wouldn't be able to, but it's mostly useless. Enchanting Bonus doesn't really have any impact in the end.
Base stat differences are negligible the moment you start getting greens, and overall the Horde's paladins are at a little disadvantage to Ally ones. But hey, you guys get orc racials.
1. Would rather a short stun, or another short silence off the GCD?
2. Do you really need the extra Tauren hp?
That's really the only difference besides base stats which is only 2-7 points different. Belf has higher base agi and int, so like 50 more mana and .02% chance to crit or something negligible at 85.
- racial interrupts casting and gives you bit of mana (good for holy)
- more health (great for tanking and pvp survival)
- racial interrupts casting, stuns target (good for any spec as it gives you time to heal, dps, etc)
(I wont count other racials as they are pretty useless for most part, just small conveniences such as herbalism etc...)
Hope this helps,
I think Tauren are favorable here.
Granted how the game goes now, I expect the need of Resistances for the Skywall raids, given it's all air elementals.
Tauren weapons also aren't tooth picks and they have a practical way of holding sword and board. ;)
