As Trump grabs headlines saying he won't participate, we have to wonder what will be interesting during this debate if he isn't there to stir things up. Will it be the most civil debate all year?
It is utterly ridiculous that Trump is throwing such a hissy-fit over Megyn Kelly, the Fox News host and debate moderator, merely because she asked him a question that he didn't like in a prior debate.
I, for one, confess that I'm really confused. How did Fox News go from something we maligned, laughed at, feared, thought of as SO right wing to a hard-edged news force that even, dare I say his name for fear of retribution, Donald Trump was afraid of?
Donald Trump's assertion that he could stand on Fifth Avenue and shoot someone, and his groupies would still support him, was met with outrage on the part of other Republican Presidential wannabees.
A Brooklynite turned "back-to-the-land" Vermont socialist who honeymooned in the Soviet Union and has far less executive experience than Sarah Palin vs. a fact-free braying bully boy billionaire real estate and gambling mogul bizarrely backed by evangelicals would be crazy enough. Toss in another New Yorker, a billionaire "daddy knows best" ex-mayor and media mogul who is no class traitor and we get the full banana republic experience.

Save and regrow tropical forests -- says an expert, as nations continue to curb carbon emissions.
After careful consideration and analysis of the top ten Republican presidential candidates' websites, it was clear that Florida Sen. Marco Rubio owns the best of them all. But what about Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Martin O'Malley? Their report cards are about to be delivered.
Turn on the news on any given day - but especially during an election - and you're likely to see and hear confrontation between Democrats and Republicans. News stories about stark disagreements in Congress, negative campaign ads, statements by politicians that sharply criticize the other party, and commentary by political pundits all point in one direction: there is little hope that the Democrats and Republicans can ever agree on anything. Moreover, not only do partisans disagree, but they are also very angry - mostly at each other.
Imagine you are in a room with 100 people. Ninety-nine people are white, two-thirds are 45 years or older, 57 are men, and more than half are born-again or evangelical Christians. Are you at the Oscars, a retirement seminar, a Rick Warren sermon or the Republican Iowa caucuses?
