This is a GREAT format and I wish the GOP would INSIST on this format in the future.

Each candidate is separately questioned by a panel and then a panel of voters.

There is no buzzer or time limit for the answers.

He opted out, don't know why.

Probably because Huckabee is a social conservative.

So far, his debates and those sponsored by conservative groups have been the most informative.

He opted out because nobody cares about a meaningless debate on a TV show on a Saturday.

Give me UNC-Duke, Kansas-Texas.

He opted out because he was trying to get his first state win by staying put in Washington to campaign up until the last moment.

Well he ended up fighting with santorum for second instead of gingrich for fourth in a state he came in second in 2008 so by some measures I guess he did ok.Of course 'always a bridesmaid never the bride' won't mean much in the end

I agree, the Huckabee debates have been by the best ones and the formats in each one has not been traditional, but has allowed for viewers to learn the most about the candidates.

could be true, but have you checked the ratings? I will add, regardless of how many do or don't watch Sat night TV, if I were struggling like he is, I would jump at any chance I get to get my poiht across and Huckabee let's them do just that. Maybe you need to pay a little attention to how he handles these forums?

Fox hates Paul and the feeling is mutual. Paul especially doesn't like Huckabee. I think it's a good thing Paul didn't show up and give any support to the right wing establishment at fox.
