I don’t watch these “debates”. They are uninformative on substance and too much like a cheesy game show. You want to know how one candidate or another thinks on his/her feet, then go to the town hall-type presentations. Yes, it takes more time than the slap-dash free-for-all of these shows, but then you also get something more meaningful about the various candidates, what they think (their policy suggestions) and how they think in citizen interactions. If we aren’t willing to put in the effort to learn about these kinds of things, maybe we deserve what we get.
