Isn't the next debate on domestic policy (Candy Crowley) and the last with Scheiffer is Foreign policy?  Contraception would fall into the next debate.....

Besides... they only had 90 minutes -- though I could have watched it for a full two hours.

That having been said, a direct criticism of the specifics of the HHS mandate would have been welcome.

No it would not have.  It would have allowed the democrats to paint Romney as an extremist on social issues.  That issue can be dealt with later on, because it falls under the larger rubric of Obamacare and federal control of the health care system.  Bringing it up is going to seriously damage Romney.

The next debate is a town hall format with questions from undecided voters (yeah...give them a full 90 minutes).  Contraception, college tuition, equal pay, government assistance in all shapes and sizes will most likely be the core of this debate.

Yeah and someone will mention the 47% you watch!

In which case, if Romney's smart, he'll say nothing more than the standard moderate pablum about abortion and contraception.  That issue is nothing more than a tarbaby for republican politicians.
