    Cain-Newt debate — live here tonight

    Cain-Newt debate — live here tonight

    Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich are having a Lincoln-Douglas style debate tonight in Texas, starting at 8 p.m. Eastern.

    I’ll be doing a live blog for it, and I’ll try to embed the C-Span live coverage, if that is possible (I don’t think it’s possible, so if anyone has a link to a live embed, let me know).

    I’ll turn the blog live shortly before it starts.

    This is an interesting twist, mostly because it’s just Cain and Newt.  As I mentioned before, I view this as a chance for Newt to replace Cain as the leading not-Romney; or alternatively, for Cain to show that he can debate with the best of them and that he has the substance needed to make his surge more than temporary.

    See you tonight.

    recording notes:
    This being one I’d love to record looks like CSPAN will be repeating Sunday morning something like 530AM to 730AM.

    Check your schedules.

    Side note #2

    This debate is on “Entitlements”
    I heard something to the effect they had set up multiple debates. Courtesy and sponsored by the “Texas Tea Party” seems this one is taking place in “The Woodlands” [north suburban Houston]
    I’m reminded that Newt, ‘the Washington Insider’, is one of those who had a career before entering politics, as a History Professor. At a non-Ivy-League Land Grant school.
