Reasonable discourse

stanchaz from greenpoint says:
The whole primary process is such a grueling , expensive, and demeaning circus that it discourages many of our best portential candidates from even thinking about competing for the presidency.

As for the debate, for the most part, the format and handling of the debate by the moderators was flawed.

Instead, let the two competitors SIT for a start, let them consult with their people before and during their answers, and let them FULLY repond to each other --for as long as it takes-- to get to the bottom of any particular question and answer.

Real answers and explanations, instead of a game of "gottcha".
Real and complete answers and detailed explanations of their respective positions, instead of truncated sound bites and cut-off or repetitive stump speech tidbits.
Of course this requires question that are relevant to the real needs and concerns of the voters as well...
