2008_10_wde.jpgWell, Politico's John F. Harris and Jim VandeHei think so and write, "With the country at one of its most interesting—not to mention terrifying—moments in a generation, John McCain and Barack Obama met in Nashville for what was surely one of the dullest and was definitely the least satisfying presidential debate in memory...The problem is the commission that has been invested with pseudo-constitutional status to run the debates but in fact weakly defers to candidates and clings to antiquated formats." Ouch! They also outline why the debate sucked so much. Last night's debate was a town hall-format, but next week's debate at Hofstra will be traditional--2 minute answers with 5 minutes for follow up discussion and 2 minute closings. And the topic is the economy and domestic policy.
