Non Partisan Thoughts on the Debate Format
Winners and losers aside I must say that IMO the format they used for last nights debate was fantastic. The moderator threw out a topic and let both candidates go to town on it. I thought the answers from both candidates were much more detailed then anything I'd heard in previous presidential debates. I loved the back and fourth between the candidates as well. I thought Jim Lehrer did a great job as well. He didn't come with the usual off topic gotcha questions that we are all used to seeing. The questions and the debate itself was as substantive as I can ever remember a debate being.
Curious as to what the board posters thought on both sides of the spectrum.
