The Republican Debate Tonight: Must See TV?

I just think it's going to be dreadful. Ten candidates is too unwieldy for the format, and my gut tells me that Chris Matthews is going to pretend he is on Hardball and talk over all his guests like he usually does. There is a theory that Matthews only has guests on so he has a working noise range that he can shout over.

Reagan will be mentioned 5 trillion times by everybody. Tough questions will not be asked. If Nancy is in the audience, the stem cell question should be asked. I want to see them answer it while she is looking at them.
