Play along with...
How will each candidate play in this unfamiliar format?
Will Lieberman be an attack-dog tomorrow, like he was when he debated Lamont, or the lap-dog he was when he debated Cheney? Will he try to nestle himself in between Schlesinger and Lamont or will he try and secure the Republican vote? Moving to the center without looking "waffly" might prove difficult since he has maintained his far-right position on the Iraq war and torture. Schlesinger has even insinuated that he was more "reasonable, rational hawk" than Lieberman during his interview on Hardball (transcript, YouTube).
Will Lamont try to flank Lieberman from the "right" on economic issues? or will he try to energize his progressive base with the war? or both?
Schlesinger needs to unequivocally dominate if he wants to continue.
What do you think?
