Any predictions at all for Tuesday's Wall St Journal/MSNBC Republican debate?

It will be Fred Thompson's first debate. He raised $9.3M this past quarter but what about debate debut performance expectation (by you, not the media)?

What about the other candidates? Is it do or die for McCain? Will Romney and Guiliani go after each other or the Democrat lefties?

Will the moderator ask fou-fou questions like turn to the left and decribe what you don't like about that guy? Will they ask any questions at all on illegal immigration that goes beyond border security? How about a question on if they think the media, like the moderator for example, is biased?

Will any stinkin' one of them address crime without mentioning squeegee guys so I know if they are up on drug-related crime in suburbia and what they can do about it?

Will any stinkin' one of them address culture decay/indecency beyond the usual ho-hum, we already know their answers, questions on abortion and same sex marriage or any other NEW debate issue to break away from the pack?

Will any of them talk about what they plan to DO versus how they feel or think?

Any other predictions on who will win the debate (doesn't have to be the guy you are supporting) and why?

Will this debate surpass the ratings for the debate on Fox News?

None of them can tell the truth to save his life, except Ron Paul. Several
are certifiable crackpots. If Alan Keyes is in this one it'll almost be a perfect storm of lunacy.

BTW, if you really think the whole culture is decaying and you think electing some guy to the presidency is going to fix it, there aren't enough air holes in your bubble.

It should be very interesting. Not the debate but the left wing liberal questions that will be asked and the manner in which they will be asked. Could they have found a more biased venue?

Of course the good thing will be that the Republicans will not look like the cowardly Democrats that were afraid to attend a Fox News debate.

I'm sorry. What's biased? MSNBC? Because Wall Street Journal's editorial board is vehemently conservative.

There'll be a lot of worship of Ronald Reagan and all but one or two of the candidates will agree with one another on 96% of everything. Everybody'll brag about how many taxes they cut and warn of the evil perils of "evil Marxist socialized medicine," such as that which Mitt Romney helped create in Massachusetts, but somehow he'll join in on the warnings.

Do you actually think it will be as shallow as the Democratic debates where they ask the all important question like "who was your favorite teacher and why?" America is waiting to know!

thank God none of them are as dumb as the current President. I'm sure people will hear a lot of lies as usual!

It'll be interesting to see how Thompson does here. I believe this will be almost a make or break situation for him. He will have to do very well if he hopes to pick up any momentum. He's lost a lot of it already. His candidacy hasn't caught fire as many so-called experts thought it would. I hope Ron Paul has a better debate than the last one and manages to smack down some of these neo-con candidates. He to has a lot on the line in this debate IMO.
