Apocalypse now? Donald Trump is going to moderate a debate.
Who would show up for such a thing? Likely everybody.

Though presidential candidates may initially balk at the idea of  appearing in a debate where Mr. Trump – with his bombast and The Hair –  is the one posing the questions, they may ultimately see it as an  invitation they can’t refuse. In fact many of the candidates have  already met with him, some more publicly than others. Representative Michele Bachmann has sat down with Mr. Trump several times this year. Gov. Rick Perry of Texas had dinner with him at Jean Georges, the posh Manhattan restaurant. And Mitt Romney paid a visit but carefully avoided being photographed.
And Newsmax is a powerful player itself. It has a broad reach into the conservative base, with monthly  Web traffic second only to Fox News among sites with  conservative-leaning audiences.
