A *Real* New Debate

Keene, NH -

Friday's Times had a piece where they asked a few of the media wizards what would be the best way to pit the candidates against one another to effectively use new media and technology. Given the boring-for-everyone-but-junkies-like-me method of 60-second sound bytes that currently holds court, I found all six of these proposals to be tantalizingly awesome. With the likes of Barack Obama now skipping everything that the DNC doesn't make him go to, and the success of the youtube debate, maybe it is high time we rocked the vote a little bit. Speaking of High Time, Tom Brokaw's idea of a debate fueled by the liberating effect of a double martini is HANDS DOWN the best.
