The “town hall” style meeting held instead of an actual debate was more of an annoyance than anything else. Just now, when both candidates are sharpening their attacks and all that, we’re forced to settle for no real discusson or debate. Instead, Tom Brokaw asks them questions he’s selected from submissions (and the audience gets to ask), and would then gently chastize each candidate for consistently going longer than the one minute they were each assigned to answer the questions.
For the majority of the time both candidates would deftly side-step the question and then simply talk about whatever they wanted. It was frustrating, and I was dissapointed that this is how it ended up. Still, I hope some people managed to get answers to their questions.
For those of you who’ve missed it, C-Span has the entire thing for you, and you can watch it below. Not exactly as riveting as most of the others I’ve seen, but not a bad way to spend an hour.
Watch this pile of terrible horse puckey if you are bored. Let us know in the comments.
