Another debate will raise the Grinch from the Dead

Tactically speaking, the best time to demand another debate would be after Gingrich drops out. Gingrich is the best debater I've ever seen--debating is the one and only advantage he has--and the prospect of another debate would re-energize Gingrich's campaign. Even though it's impossible for Gingrich to win, the media is looking for a reason to channel the anti-Romney energy in his direction instead of Paul's and one final debate would do that.

Once the final nail is hammered into Gingrich's coffin and his campaign is buried, that's when we ought to get loud and demand another debate. But I think it's a huge mistake to do it before then.
