This scenario is exactly what I hope will be the outcome of one of these debates.
I would love to see Obama and Romney actually come to blows.
Not over some deeply held philosophical belief (because we know they agree on all the main things), but over something minor: like who mowed Romney's lawn, or whether Obama is a natural born citizen.
I thought that one exchange Romney and Perry almost resulted in fisticuffs during one of the Republican debates. Maybe Obama can get Romney angry enough to take a swing.. or vice-versa. I really don't care.
There can be no better symbol of the current state of American politics than two middle aged men fighting in their business suits, live on national TV. At least if that happened, we would know that one of them cared about something.
