No Question

As has been reported elsewhere in the press in far greater detail than we will bother with here, the two presidential agreements have signed a 32-page memorandum laying out rules for the upcoming debates. Most of these rule negotiations were rather bizarre; e.g., the Bush team's efforts to get the room temperature raised above 70 degrees so that Kerry might sweat.

But there is at least one rule this website finds problematic: the stipulation that neither candidate is allowed to pose questions directly to their opponent. Isn't the essence of debate the opportunity to compare and contrast two views?

"the essence of debate" Common sense seems to no longer have a place in the realm of politics
