Why would Romney agree to

Why would Romney agree to debate Paul? He has nothing to gain and everything to lose. He will not look bad if he refuses. He can simply say that the candidates agreed months ago to the debate schedule, and there would be no debates in May. He has a huge lead, and people will think this is just Ron Paul being desperate, despite having no chance (and yes this is what the media would say). Romney does not have to debate Paul and it would stupid for him to do so. The media will occasionally cover Paul, and when they do they will drive home the meme that he can't win and he's just sticking around to get out the message
