    It's politics. They're scared to death of Hillary. And justifiably so. Plus, given the field they had up there last time, the MSM had a field day with them. Even Fox laid waste to a number of them.

    Based on Candy Crowley's performance in 2012, I'm OK with this.

    True enough!

    I would rather watch stand-up comedy on CC.

    Or paint dry.

    Not the same thing. What he was talking about is something they complained about during and since the last primary season. That there were way too many debates and that weakened their final nominee because of all the political infighting which takes place during the primary season. They ate their own.

    Not me. Depending on the Republican nominee this time around, if she's the Democratic nominee, and the Repubs put up a dumba&&, I may very well vote for her.

    You may be correct. But i don't think so. And both parties hated it tremendously (as did the MSM), which meant it was a good, no scratch that, a great thing in my book.

    I was watching the VP debates before I had to go meet my friend's parents who were visiting from England. When my friend's mother found out I was watching the debates she asked me why I was gay. Awkward.

    The RNC needs CNN and NBC waaaaaaaaaaaaaay more than CNN and NBC need the RNC. Very dumb move.

    I know.

    Let's have the debates sponsored by John Stewart and Steven Colbert, and televised over Comedy Central.

    That way, there won't be any softball questions, and maybe people will actually watch the debates. Stewart's expressions when the candidates sidestep the questions would be hilarious in themselves.
