The candidates may end up having to follow them to the edge to keep up if they aren’t disciplined enough to keep their balance, and that may produce some problems in a general election.
What kind of problems?
You mean problems like getting your ass kicked ragged for like the 20th time in a row, you drooling doofuses?
Would Christie show up for a debate moderated by them under those circumstances?
With any luck, no. But he probably would. He’s a brawler from the podium.
Update (Ed): I think Christie in particular would feel compelled to attend. His attractiveness is based on his blunt style and willingness to take on opponents. If he ran away from Levin, it would undermine his entire raison d’être for Republican voters. I think that’s also true for other candidates, too; voters would ask, “If he/she can’t handle Levin …”
Point. And what a hell of a show it would be. Put it on FOX and watch the leftynets melt down while FOX rolls up the biggest ratings boom in political history. Added bonus: NYT wets its panties right out in public.
