1. Where did you hear that? I know the questions for the town hall
style debate will be submitted to the moderators in advance, but I haven't heard that any of the questions would be given to the candidates.

3. Got this off the John Kerry blog
..."
NOW with Bill Moyers: saw the show Fri. nite, was disappointed to find out ALL questions will be known in advance by both candidates. When the League of Women Voters ran the debates the candidates didn't know the questions in advance. "

4. You should assume that....
If the Town hall questions are known...then the other debates will be transparant as well

Very interesting interview with George Farah, author of "No Debates." and founder of this Web site http://opendebates.com /

Very interesting. Visit the Web site if you want more info.

He stated the questions are all preapproved. Also said that follow-up questions are usually not allowed.


Here is the Memorandum of Understanding agreed to by both campaigns for the 2004 debates.
