Tuesday's Vegas Republican Debate Prep

The Las Vegas Review-Journal has posted an article about the prep and the behind the scenes action for tomorrow night's Republican debate, moderated by Anderson Cooper, on CNN.

At the first CNN presidential debate this campaign season, 5-foot-2 Michele Bachmann asked for a height-raising block to stand on behind the lectern . Her request was granted and then all the other candidates seeking equal treatment got risers, too, even 6-foot-2 Mitt Romney.

Now, it's the same setup every time.

The candidates also each get a bottle of water, paper and pen. And before the debate begins each contender, one by one, stands separately on stage to test the lighting, to find out how a suit or tie appears on camera and to ensure there's a direct-line view of a spouse sitting in the audience.

"They want to feel comfortable," said Keith Thornhill, CNN's project manager for the debate.
