    The debates are where the fun happens, my friend. No scripts, no written speeches. This has the makings of disaster or triumph. It is the playoffs of politics!

    dave is right, the debates are where its put up or shut up. both sides can look great in front of their own constituencies but on neutral ground, with no script, is where the candidates can really separate themselves or capsize their own campaigns (see Stockdale, Admiral, 1992. whatever happened to THAT guy?)

    Admiral Stockdale actually passed away in 2005.
