Alan Keyes will participate in Dec. 12 Iowa Republican Presidential Debate

Am still disgusted that Keyes was kept out of prior GOP presidential debates this year. Keyes is the best verbal debater of all the candidates, whether you like him or not, or agree that he has a chance, you have to give him that. It's unfortunate that Obama gets all the media attention for being a black presidential candidate, while Keyes is shunned because he's conservative.

Republican presidential candidate Alan Keyes has accepted an invitation to participate in the last scheduled — and in some ways most important — Republican debate before the Jan. 3 first-in-the-nation Iowa Caucus.
The Des Moines Register's Republican Presidential Debate is scheduled for 1:00 pm on Dec. 12 at Iowa Public Television's Maytag Auditorium in Johnston, Iowa.
At last report, all major Republican candidates except former NY mayor Rudy Giuliani have also accepted the invitation to participate.
The Des Moines Register has a reputation for putting on fair and informative events. Their debates have become an Iowa tradition that reporters and editors from across the nation take seriously.
The debate will be broadcast live on statewide Iowa Public Television from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. (CT) Dec. 12, and will be re-broadcast at a later time on IPTV. The program will also be offered to public television stations across the country.
Ambassador Keyes expressed his thanks to the sponsors of the event, saying, "I'm grateful to those who will not abandon their resolve to raise the standard of political integrity. I pray God that my participation in the debate will vindicate their good will."
