They Must Be Kidding

Kevin Drum and Steve Benen think Hilary would stomp all over Fred Thompson in a debate.

Which debate? The substance debate, probably yes. The image debate, I seriously doubt it.

Are we forgetting the 2000 debates already, you know the ones that Gore "won" on substance but "lost" on style (Gore "sighs", W was somebody to have a drink with, even though the then Texas governor was a famous tea-totalling reformed alcoholic).

And when so much of the male media already has man-crushes on Thompson, I fail to see how any debates would be treated seriously for their content.
