On the Road Again: CNN/YouTube Debate


Tuesday, November 27th, 2007

I’m packing for tomorrow’s CNN/YouTube Republican debate in Florida. In July we went to the CNN/YouTube Democratic Debate in Charleston, South Carolina. In this blast from the past, I ask CNN SVP David Bohrman why the state of our voting system didn’t get more attention in the first debate.

The video question we submitted for the debate wasn’t used, and CNN only chose to spend one question and one candidate response on the issue of election reform. Let’s hope we have better luck this time around.

    Blondie should learn why we all vote on one day instead of across several days before she advocates that change. It is the way it is for a reason … a good reason.

    What’s the reason Normie? And why is it better than getting more people to vote?
