katinga: The obvious reply is, after this happens a couple of times, "Mr. Brokaw, you are not running for president. We are. And this is not a press conference, but a debate." Then go on to say what he needs to say.

This would need to be gamed in debate prep, because Brokaw will probably also be debate prepping for any attempt of Romney to pull a Newt.

Romney handled it much better with Lehrer. But if it is a Brokaw scenario, he may eventually have to be a little more forceful. I think the left-wing moderators are absolutely prepping for how to control the candidates (by which I mean Romney, of course). They have been under relentless pressure from the left and the 0bama campaign in particular, to get back with the program and remember whose side they are on.
