Debating the Debates

November 17, 2011
Elsewhere on this site, my colleague Matthew Dowd writes an eloquent brief against the heavy hand of media organizers on this year's presidential debates. Citing last week's National Journal/CBS debate as an example, he argues that his fellow Texan, Rep. Ron Paul, deserved more air time.

More broadly, Dowd objects to debate organizers' spurning of dark-horse candidates like former Louisiana Gov. Buddy Roemer. Another former governor, Gary Johnson, has loudly objected to his exclusion and taken his case to the Federal Election Commission.

On the surface, Dowd's argument that we should thousand candidates bloom has a certain appeal. But be careful what you wish for, dear readers.
