Are Both Presidential Candidates Afraid of What Candy Crowley Might Ask?

Time magazine is reporting that both the Romney and Obama campaigns have expressed concern to the Commission on Presidential Debates about how Candy Crowley, the moderator of the Tuesday town hall, has publicly described her role and that she will also be asking questions.

That is bizarre that they are complaining. What are they both afraid of? A surprise question? A tough question? Or worse, a follow-up question that challenges them? That is exactly what the American people want in a debate and yes, Candy Crowley can do that. Both candidates need to be ready for anything and capable of answering anything.

There is no question that Candy Crowley is a pro with years and years of real experience... but if a candidate fears what Candy might ask at a debate, what happens when the candidate faces world leaders? Shrink and run?

It scares me that the campaigns and candidates may be a bunch of scaredy cats.
