For more debate

Posted By on Thu, Aug 23, 2007 at 6:07 AM

Newt Gingrich, writing in the LA Times, says Mike Huckabee is the only presidential candidate so far to officially sign on (Giuliani has signaled willingness, too) for a proposal to hold nine 90-minute debates in the nine weeks before the 2008 general election. The idea is unstructured one-on-one discussions built on issues. Not great TV, perhaps, but ...

How is this different? We are asking the candidates to throw out the rule book that has stifled political debate. Each party's nominee would be expected to present and defend solutions in a one-on-one dialogue with his or her opponent. The moderator would only keep time and introduce topics.
