Lehrer Discusses Contours Of Presidential Debate

Click to Read

Lehrer Discusses Contours Of Presidential Debate Jim Lehrer has moderated ten presidential debates in his lifetime. But as he approaches his responsibilities as the host of the first go-around between Barack Obama and John McCain, his nerves aren't any calmer than when he first did this. "If you screw this thing up it isn't like a television program where you can say, "Oh sorry, I'll do better tomorrow. . . if you make a mistake as a moderator in one of these debates it could affect who becomes the next president of the United States." The first debate is one week from today.

If only debate monitors had an ounce of politeness and fairness, things could have been a lot different.

If only all debate moderators thought like this. Maybe then we would not have to endure flag pin questions.
