With 20 debates between the Democratic candidates already in the books, and another scheduled before the Pennsylvania primary, it’s a little hard to believe that CBS News hasn’t yet had the opportunity to ask a few gotcha questions of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Katie Couric may just get the chance.
CBS has already failed to stage a presidential debate between the Democratic candidates, first because the candidates begged off, and then because the Hollywood writers’ strike derailed the network’s plans.
But the extended primary season has offered CBS another chance, and the network has been aggressively pursuing a debate. Ms. Couric herself has talked to both campaigns, a CBS executive said.
