Fred,

Fine post. Agree with your suggestion. They should allow viewers/visitors to vote the questions up and down ala digg. Too bad we are not getting actual debates but more of a press conference type staging. Finally, the candidates need to be pushed into providing direct answers. The cast was too short on substance.

While it was more entertaining than the standard press conference debates, it really wasn't "new" at all. Remember, CNN "filtered" EVERY exposed submission. As a result you saw what CNN wanted you to see. There is nothing cutting edge about CNN. When the candidates really have to address questions w/o filters the event/experience could be completely different. If there is something to apply to Radio here, it's to allow penetrating discussion with our listeners w/o filters.
