24 Hours to Improving democratic debate live blog

By

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that I am often asked about the democratic debate. This is a live blog of the debate between John and Sam at the University of Utah’s student run campus newspaper. It is broadcast Monday through Friday.

I am an avid sports fan, but I have never been a sports fan until I was a freshman in college. By that point I was already a serious debate fan as well. The best way to describe my love for the democratic debate is to say its like watching a real debate. Of course, the debate format is completely different, with the debate taking place in just four days.

The debate format is based on the real US presidential debates that took place in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The format consists of six rounds of questions. The candidates are split equally between candidates and positions. The candidates then debate each other in a set number of rounds. The candidates then have three minutes to respond to each question. The moderator asks the first question. The candidate with the most votes is then allowed to answer that question.

In the live blog, we saw a debate between two candidates. The debate began with a question from one of the candidates. While that question is asked, the moderator asks the second question. The second question is also posed after the question was asked. The moderator then asks the third question, and the candidates then have three minutes to respond to it.

The first question was about the minimum wage. It was a good question and one that had a lot of debate. The second question was about gay marriage. A lot of debate was centered around what the candidates would consider a gay marriage. The third question was about the minimum wage. While that question was asked, the moderator told us that the candidates would be allowed to take a five second break or answer the questions they were asked.

So the candidates were allowed to take a five second break and answer the questions they were asked? That is an amazing new innovation in the US debate industry. It’s also a refreshing break from the constant interruptions that seem to be part of most debates. Not the least of which is the constant interruptions from the moderator.

While I think it’s great that people have the ability to take a break, I also think there should be a way for the moderator to end the debate. Instead of allowing candidates to take a break at their own discretion, the moderator should end the debate after the candidate takes more than five seconds to answer a question. The reason being that the moderator can end the debate if the candidate takes more than five seconds to answer a question.

I think it’s important to remember that a lot of political candidates are running for office because they believe that their views are the only ones that are worth hearing, or at least worth considering. It’s not always obvious who is or isn’t a good fit for office.

If you’re looking for a good example of a candidate who isnt a good fit for office, watch the debate between Republican candidate for state representative Joe Hoagland and Democrat candidate for senate and attorney general Bob Goodlatte. Both candidates were using canned answers to answer questions, but as soon as the debate ended, the candidates went back to using canned answers.

As a reminder, the debate lasted 4:52 and Hoagland got the question first. Goodlatte’s response was an excellent response.
