Well, it sorta depends on the terms of the debate.  If it means appearing on Hannity's show, 
where Hannity controls access to the mike and can cut him off whenever Hannity doesn't like 
what he's going to say, I wouldn't bother.   I don't know that much about Hannity, but I know 
that's Bill O'Reilly's tactic.  As soon as you say something he doesn't like, he says, 
"Shutup, just shutup" and tells the engineer to cut your mike.  I wouldn't go on his show if 
they paid me.

Well, maybe if they paid me a really LOT, which they won't.
