    of a debate obviously, thinking it's free advertising for the candidates.
    But the real reason is a graceful way to get out of having so many debates in the first place like last time which they realize now was detrimental to their candidates. Pretty sad if the more exposure they get the worse they seem but hey you gotta do what you gotta do.

      country since Lincoln/Douglas.   The parties set the rules, pick the moderators and then break the rules.  

      The only candidates that I have even seen give honest answers at a "debate" were Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul - because they didn't give a rat's ass about getting elected, they just had points to make that they wanted heard by large audiences in Prime Time.  

      The patellar reflex is a deep tendon reflex which allows one to keep one's balance with little effort or conscious thought.
