Debate: Live From Boca Raton, Fla.

And we’re back at yet another of these powwows. Thus far co-moderator Tim Russert has tried to play


with McCain, Huckabee, and Romney, yet none has taken the bait. Russert seems consumed with trying to get the candidates to say they don’t trust one another, but his craving for conflict just looks desperate. Didn’t he learn from the Democratic debate on Monday? Less moderator involvement means more squabbling.
