26 Sep 2004 Presidential Debate
I am quite skeptical of the notion that the country needs a presidential debate commission.
As far as I am concerned, if the candidates want to debate in their boxer shorts perched atop Mount McKinley, its their call. They are the ones who won their party’s respective nomination, not the members of some obscure commission.
Besides, would the candidates really choose a worse venue than the Commission did: Southern Florida during a very active hurricane season?
But possibly commission members haven’t heard of the hurricanes. They’ve missed some other major news, too: The late former President Ronald Reagan is still listed as an honorary co-chairman of the commission on the group’s website.
