Kudos to these 9 candidates for agreeing to May 3 debate

From the Politico

Nine GOP White House hopefuls will participate in a May 3 debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, an event hosted by the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation, in conjunction with MSNBC and The Politico.

Accepting former first lady Nancy Reagan's invitation are Sen. Sam Brownback (Kan.), former Virginia governor Jim Gilmore, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, Rep. Duncan Hunter (Calif.), Sen. John McCain (Ariz.), Rep. Ron Paul (Texas), former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney and former Wisconsin governor Tommy G. Thompson.

I got to give the frontrunners some credit. Rudy, McCain, and Romney could have dodged this if they chose to take the safest route. Instead they are going up against not only each other, but many of the lesser known candidates. There are many diverse views among this crowd, and with Ron Paul involved, it will be a very interesting debate. I only wish Tom Tancredo was there as well. This should be interesting.

Set the VCR's and TIVO machines up for this one.

Sounds more like a circus than a debate. With so many participating each candidate will only get a few minutes to talk which means it will be easy to evade any hard questions.
