#1 The arrogance of power is not taken, it is freely given! Why should she debate? She is not called to debate by her constituents, and it only provides visibility to the challenger. So why bother ?

#4 Detroit Tigers explain decision not to play in the World Series.
"There's just nothing competitive coming out of their postseason" said triple crown winner Miguel Cabrerra. "We have solid pitching, an explosive offense able to score at will, and besides we already have defeated a West Coast team. They are a team which had to go seven games against a wildcard entry, we just swept the New York Yankees. The fans know who will win this, so why risk grave injury to any players or fans?"

#5 In 1972 Richard Nixon gave George McGovern the same treatment.
Truth is, if I was Feinstein I wouldn't debate either. Debates are for candidates in a close race where each one sees it as a chance to gain an advantage. It's not Feinstein's job to help Emken's campaign. That's Emken's job. You might argue that a debate would be in the best interest of the voters. But as long as California voters are dumb enough to keep reelecting Feinstein why should she care?
