You cannot seriously think Bob Schieffer will be impartial! The man is too professional and too savvy to be as obvious as Chris Matthews, but he is clearly not crazy about the GOP or cosnervatives in general. Let's hope the professional in him helps him to attempt neutrality.

I confess a certain fascination with debate prep. What is it, exactly?

What did Mitt Romney do that earned him such a commanding win in his first debate with President Obama? What did the President not do?

In the second debate, was President Obama better prepared, or just more energetic and focused? Could Mitt Romney have prevented an underwhelming moment on Libya with a few more drills alongside Rob Portman?

I raise these questions because as the final debate draws near, I wonder how Governor Romney’s time is best spent. Is it a matter of homework alone, or something deeper?
