Hillary Agrees to North Carolina Debate

I miss the debates. It looks like we will get at least one more and probably 2. . Hillary Clinton has agreed to a CBS North Carolina debate on April 27, in advance of the state's primary. No final word on whether Obama agreed.

An invitation to debate in Indiana is also pending.

There will be a Philly debate on April 16.

    It is truly a pleasure to come to your comment section, unlike most others. I can take disagreement, but nonsense and rudeness makes it just not worth my time.

    I miss the debates too.  For me, it is the best way to get a good look at the candidates.

    Love me some debates! (5.00 / 2) (#5)

    I personally don't understand why people say we have had to many debates. I think we have had to many repetative moderators who don't take a chance with real questions. Unfortunately I don't see that changing. I would love love love a TalkLeft debate! Heh.

    deleted. ObamaMama was banned. She's returned as Obama Mama and now ObamaDrama. She should stop. Once banned, registering with another name won't reinstate commenting privileges here.

    I miss the debates.

    Do you really??

    Also I thought Obama agreed to the North Carolina debate a while back.

    Obama agreed to CBS' original date of April 19.  They changed the debate to the 27th to avoid Passover observance.  Obama hasn't officially accepted, but god forbid the entire story gets reported.

    It was reported. (5.00 / 1) (#8)

    The whole passover issue with the original date was reported in a diary here.

    That is impossible on this blog, what showing both sides of this Democratic election process

    There is a feature (5.00 / 2) (#9)

    on the site that you might not have noticed.  It is appropriately named Search and can be found on the right side of every page.  

    I was just able to use it and see that Jeralyn posted about the debate in Pennsylvania on March 13.  And it did include  this "There may even be one more, in North Carolina. Obama has agreed and Hillary has not yet responded."

    Jeralyn works and I think it's great she also  finds time to do posts during the day.  Is it too much to ask for the readers to follow the links to the sources she provides and do a simple search for previous related posts before posting a criticism with no basis?

    I get tired of watching the talking heads and surrogates - I want to see the candidates themselves.  How often do we actually see them for any lengh of time in primetime TV?

    Why not have a REAL debate?

    I'll watch the debate... (none / 0) (#12)

    I'll watch the debate, but I hope to high heaven that Hillary Clinton won't do any more of her "Gee whiz I'm so thrilled to be on the stage with Barack" schticks. It really turns my stomach.

    What IS she thinking when she goes into that mode?
