    1.) Harry Reid learned that Obama was on the verge of dropping out of this debate, so Hillary and Harry Reid quickly moved to pull the plug on this entirely, so that Hillary would not look like an also-ran laggard late to the party.

    also, I wonder if Roger Ailes' anti-Obama statement last night finally p*ssed Obama off enough to compel Obama to tell Reid that he was dropping out of this debate.

    Our calls to Obama may have also helped to influence Obama to do the right thing.

    Or, my alternate take:

    2.) Roger Ailes' dumbass comments last nite may have p*ssed off the whole lot of Obama, Hillary, and Reid, such that they collectively instantly decided to kill this thing right off.

    in any event, Kos is correct; Edwards showed leadership and courage and is a big winner here.

    and Fox News has been taught a HUGE lesson here, which is that if they want to continue to be total assholes, then they will pay.

    this sets the tone for everything to come, in that if Fox News wants to cover the 2008 Dem presidential campaign, then they had better clean up their act and stop doing stupid things like what Roger Ailes did last night.
