Dems to Debate Again and (Maybe) Again
Both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have agreed to participate in another debate, their 21st, to be held in mid-April in Philadelphia. Obama has also agreed to a 22nd debate a few days later, but the Clinton camp hasn’t yet responded.
Hopefully all the jockeying over national security issues will limit the usual 45-minute argument over a health-care mandate.
The Hill and Bary show might be a ratings winner, but they need to get some new material to chew over. This is starting to feel like a season of “Lost.”
WAIT, BEFORE YOU GO…
Both candidates have accepted an ABC News debate in Philadelphia and Obama has accepted a similar invitation from CBS News to debate at a location to be determined in North Carolina.
The CBS News debate would be their first debate of the 2008 campaign season.
