Will the Democratic Frontrunners Skip Some Early Debates?


Roger Simon writes in the Politico that the Democratic frontrunners (Hillary, Obama) may skip some early debates. Okay, well, he speculates that they may not attend some, as neither has accepted nor turned down an invitation to debate yet. They do have day jobs, of course.

I am in agreement with Simon 100 percent that if the Nevada Democratic Party is going to have a debate, there is absolutely no good reason to have it in Carson City when the national press corps is itching for a chance to go to Vegas on expense accounts.
