Anyone Care to Make Predictions About Tonight’s Debate?

I’ll be fearless:

Brit Hume’s questions will be better than Chris Matthews.

If the debate is advertised at all during American Idol tonight (the hour before the debate), Brit Hume’s ratings will go up tomorrow night.

Tom Tancredo will finally get to talk about immigration (and hopefully not Mecca).

Abortion will come up.

So will Iraq.

John McCain will not use the word “hell” again.

Mike Huckabee will continue to be likable.

Fred Thompson will not be there — but he’ll still factor be a factor in the post-game commentary.
