This year, it's a rematch, as Paul Begala and Tucker Carlson will face off during next week's Conservative Political Action Conference. It's become a tradition, of sorts, that a prominent liberal and conservative take part in a debate at the conservative conference. This year's "Fight Club 2013" brings back together CNN's Begala and the Daily Caller's Carlson, who participated in the event in 2012 as well. The faceoff will take place Thursday, March 14 at 2:45 p.m. at CPAC, which this year is being held at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center at Maryland's National Harbor.
Begala may be the only prominent liberal to take the stage, as MSNBC's Chris Hayes flirted with the idea of coming, before deciding he would stay home because the conference continues to exclude gay conservative groups like GOProud. Hayes' conservative colleague S.E. Cupp decided to cancel her appearance at CPAC for the same reason.
