    An unmoderated debate? That's a strong suggestion by Hillary and such a debate might be quite revealing. Of course Obama is unlikely to accept. Now that he is ahead, Obama's playing the game not to lose.

    Obama has penchant for sticking his foot in his mouth. He's not going to go live, unmoderated with Hillary. She'd kill him.

    He's especially not going to do it when he's in the lead and she's trying to play catch up. Hillary has nothing to lose, Obama has tons to lose if he agrees.

    Problem is, he's going to take fire for not agreeing to the debate because the Clinton machine will be sure to paint him as a coward.

    No, he's not chicken, just politically smart. He's letting the clock run out and he has the lead. This is really much to do about nothing, in my opinion.

    That's what I was thinking. Not the most upstanding move, but politically smart.

    Too bad. A unmoderated debate is a debate I'd actually watch.

    They have had 21 already.

    Unmoderated would be interesting since the media dorks don't even ask the questions that are important.

    How many do we need, kinda like takeovers and takeovers and .... if they were listened to and thought about it would have meaning but they are becoming spin sessions based on the Rove-ian theory of politics: throw dirt, throw dirt and lastly throw dirt.
