a. Ms. Healy immediately pledges to cease all negative attack ads and disavows those placed on her behalf by others ( including Mr. Romney via the National Republican Governors) – a pledge Mr. Patrick will take with her, of course.;
b. The negotiations should cite and include specific ads and literature – once they are removed then a reasoned one on one debate is justified;
c. To debate one on one in a low class, mudslinging, irrational atmosphere would grant dignity to such a negative process, which only a minority of folks admire. Mr. Patrick is above that and the voters don’t want or deserve it.
