I have always been an opponent of these YouTube debates, and like Jim Geraghty, I am especially concerned about the timing of tomorrow’s showdown. Right now, the Republican race is entering a phase in which the candidates are really starting to take their gloves off and go after each other. More than ever, we need a trained journalist to moderate the discussion and ask pointed questions drawing out the contrast among the candidates. Instead, we’ll have to suffer through the spectacle of snowmen asking questions. The democratization of the media has produced a lot of wonderful results, but sometimes it’s best to leave things to professionals. Hopefully I’m proven wrong.
