Bala Ambati has a proposal to turn the "boring" Presidential debate into a kind of steel cage death match.
So I propose to make the debates into an NCAA tournament with brackets of a series of 1-on-1 debates. This would allow for real debates and challenges of mettle and grace under pressure. It would give opportunity for Vegas bookies to make money, thereby enhancing the public's interest in the goings-on. We could even get moderators of interest (bring back Bill Clinton, Newt Gingrich, Bob Dole, Al Gore for guest appearances as moderators on themes of their interest). It would transform the boring into a sporting extravaganza!
The finals would resolve to something he calls the "Russert Bowl", which can have all the hoopla of a major sporting playoff. My only question is whether cheerleaders will be allowed. Nothing follows.
