    •  They'll have "debates" (0+ / 0-)

        With Candy Crowley as a moderator lobbing her softballs, Romney has absolutely nothing to worry about.

    •  Actually, Carter refused to debate in 1980 (0+ / 0-)

      Refusing to show at the first debate, which was held between John Anderson and Ronald Reagan.  Carter then changed his mind and showed for the second debate, which was the only debate between Reagan and Carter - John Anderson was not invited to this one because he had dropped too far in the polls.  Carter was ahead in the polls but that changed after his poor performance.
