Imagine what this race would be like right now if Senator Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren never signed the "People's Pledge"?

Brown could have benefited from outside groups running ads going after Warren on the American Indian heritage controversy. Pro-Warren groups could be making up ground on this debate mess and going after Brown on the debates. Instead, we're subjected to boring campaign ads like this and this.

It's impossible to say where the way race would be if outside groups on both sides dumped millions into ads but it would certainly be different. This debate bickering will be mostly forgotten by Election Day but if an outside group went up with an ad scolding Brown for his moves on debates than it would probably resonate beyond political junkies and members of the media.
