Here’s A Suggestion

July 8th, 2007at 10:33am Posted by Eli

So, Fox and the CBC are supposedly desperate to salvage the Democratic debate that Fox is hosting in Detroit:

Only three candidates, mostly lesser-knowns at that, have agreed to show up. The Big Three — Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) and Barack Obama (Ill.) and former Sen. John Edwards (N.C.) — said several months ago that they would not debate on the network that many Democrats believe tilts far to the right.

But organizers, including prominent members of the black caucus, are not ready to admit defeat. They still hope to entice (or shame) the front-runners into attending and, failing that, to devise an alternate format to add zest to the show beyond the lengthy discourses of Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. (Del.), Rep. Dennis Kucinich (Ohio) and former Sen. Mike Gravel (Alaska).

Okay, how about this, then: Let the Democrats choose the moderator and post-debate analysts. Or at least give them veto power over the selections.

This, of course, assumes that Fox views the debate as something other than an opportunity to slime Democrats. So it’ll probably never happen.
