Why keep Carly Fiorina out of the next Republican debate?

The Illinois primary is on March 15th and I still don’t know who I’m voting for — but I do like Mike Johnson’s short descriptions of the candidates in his American Thinker post today — and yes, Carly should be in the debate:

I’m mad as hell, and I’m voting for Carly Fiorina.

The Establishment keeps telling me what to think and whom to vote for. What do they know? Whatever they’re doing, it’s not working, but they have the audacity to keep telling me they know best. […]

Now, now they are telling me that only seven of the remaining eight candidates has a message worth listening to. They’re wrong again! Carly Fiorina should be in the 6 February debate.

Let me run through the list of candidates remaining in the field in roughly the order of the current polling:

Trump – I like the Donald, but he scares me.

Rubio – Smart and glib, but too young and inexperienced. Another Obama?

Cruz – More mature than Rubio but extremely unlikable.

Kasich – Best résumé, but too left for me.

Bush – Snakebit. Hasn’t recovered from the low energy label.

Christie – Spotty record in a tough state, very likeable.

Carson – Nice guy, very intelligent, but no relevant experience.

Fiorina – Solid positions, knowledgeable, aggressive, and willing to buck the status quo.
