9. Another reason to dump this 'debate' commission
I have no problem with negotiating with the campaigns about times and places, maybe even themes for each of the events.
But it would be far better to have a completely independent organization make the rules and then tell the candidates that they have to abide by them.
Enough of this nonsense negotiating 'titles' or who can come onto the stage after the event concludes ... and when, so on and so forth.
Frankly, I'd like to see notes allowed for the candidates (I hope our President always has information available when making decisions and giving important answers).
Lastly, I'd like these so-called debates to be earlier in the process and downplayed -- over the years they have become corporate news media and pundit extravaganzas way out of proportion to their informational value.
