So Dennis Kucinich and Mike Gravel are not participating in this afternoon's debate. Seems weird when Keyes was up there yesterday amid the Republicans. But the criteria are 1% in a specific Des Moines Register poll and an office in the state. Dennis Kucinich works out of his home, has no office and therefore can't participate. He does add spice but having Russert waste time asking him about UFOs was infuriating. Isn't there too much at stake in this election to be fooling around with that ridiculously with an improbable nominee.
Let's note that the Dems have debated 15 times while the Republicans have only 9. Weasels.
The debate will be broadcast on CNN at 2 pm today.
