First GOP Presidential Primary Debate
Eight months before the first state primary is held, the ten announced candidates for the Republican nomination for president will hold their first debate tonight. Don't bather watching. It is extremely unlikely that anything said tonight will be remembered more than a week from now. It is being held at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. So you can expect each candidate to emphasize how some policy they espouse would be embraced by the 40th president. The one thing I'd love a candidate to do is to make mention of how their willingness to submit to questions from a stark raving lunatic lefty like Chris Matthews differs from how the Democrat candidates recoiled in fear at the thought of a debate moderated by Britt Hume.
