Rachel Maddow To Moderate Democratic Forum

Rachel Maddow will moderate a “forum” for the Democratic presidential candidates which will be held at South Carolina’s Winthrop University on Friday, November 6th. The event will be carried by MSNBC and coverage will begin at 6PM with a special live edition of Hardball co-hosted by Chris Matthews with Steve Kornacki. Anderson Cooper hosted the first Democratic debate so this makes the gays two-for-two. Teabagistan will be ever so unhappy.

UPDATE: As a reader points out below, the event is being billed as “First in the South Democratic Candidates Forum.” The difference between a debate and a forum is for you to decide. I’ve changed the headline and text of this post to be more clear.
