They Really Do Listen
..... at least sometimes. Richardson backed out after Edwards did. I suspect Obama and Hillary didn't want to have to make that decision, thus pressuring Nevada Dems:
“Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and the Nevada Democratic Party announced today that they are backing out of a Fox News-sponsored presidential debate in August following Fox President Roger Ailes’s recent remarks comparing Democratic Senator Barack Obama to al Qaeda terrorist Osama Bin Laden. Fox News did not answer calls seeking reaction to the decision.”
Grassroots/netroots pressure made this happen. It was a crazy idea legitimize the Faux idiots in the first place. It's nice to see that the Democratic leadership has seen the err of their ways.

Congratulations on a good job Dems.
