Watch the Howard Dean-Ralph Nader face-off at 2 p.m. ET, streamed live on BlogforAmerica.com.

Ahead of the big debate, Dean's people say: "With so much at stake in this election, now is not the time for a third party candidate. Governor Dean will make the case that anyone who cares about the future of our country and undoing the damage George Bush has done will be voting for John Kerry."

As for Nader, he wants five bucks every time Howard Dean uses the following phrases in the debate: "Spoiler" "Florida 2000" "A vote for Nader is a vote for Bush" "The Nader Factor" "Not the year for a third party" "Ralph Nader is not going to be President" "Anybody but Bush" "All about Ralph Nader" "Safe states" "In bed with the GOP." Sounds like a drinking game!
