In their first face-to-face meeting, US Senate Scott Brown and his Democratic rival Elizabeth Warren face delicate challenges: she must engage him on issues without seeming aggressive; he must fend off her charges without hurting his likeable image. Brown and Warren are set to take the stage in a Boston television station Thursday evening, stripped of their political handlers and media experts. The debate, which will give the public its first unspun look at how they handle themselves, is scheduled to air live on WBZ-TV (Channel 4) at 7 PM — although as of Wednesday night, there was an outside chance it would be postponed because of Senate votes that would keep Brown in Washington.
