This is good news. I'm glad to see at least one of the candidates is saying no. Kos has this from the Edwards campaign -

We will not be participating in the Fox debate. We're going to make lots of appearances in Nevada, including debates. By the end of March, we will have attended three presidential forums in Nevada - and there are already at least three proposed Nevada debates. We're definitely going to debate in Nevada, but we don't see why this needs to be one of them.

The notion that the Democratic Party would allow its first--or any--Presidential debate on Fox is absurd and an insult to the Democratic Party. Barack Obama has made it a policy to freeze out Fox after they shamelessly attempted to portray him as a terrorist sympathiser by spreading disinformation that he attended a madrassah as a child. Obama and the rest of the Democratic Presidential candidates need to step up to the plate and join Edwards in refusing to participate in anything connected to Fox.
