Ding ding! We've got the Illinois Gubernatorial Democratic Primary Debate coming up in two days... giving us the long-awaited showdown between Cook County State's Attorney Peter Florrick and CEO Maddie Hayward.

Florrick has been rumored to be hunkered down in debate prep for the past several weeks. Hayward has been pummeling him ferociously in the press, and Florrick hopes to use the debate to regain the upper hand with the voters. Our girl Maddie, on the other hand, is the bigger question mark. As the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, MH Microelectronics, she's an adept public speaker, but it will be her first time in a formal debate setting. Will she take home the big prize? (Argo f*** yourself, Maddie!) Will she win but somehow manage to turn everyone against her? (Tip to Maddie: no simpering "It came true!" in a sexy baby voice) Or flop like the sweat off of Seth MacFarlane's brow? Predictions, readers?
