The Rachel Maddow Show has this interview Bernie Sanders pitches issues-focused debate changes.
Senator Bernie Sanders, Democratic candidate for president, talks with Rachel Maddow about how he’s managing the logistics of a rapidly growing campaign and his ideas for holding bipartisan debates to keep campaigns focused on issues.
The greatest ideas since presidential debates have been broadcast, maybe since presidential debates have ever been held.
I think the Democratic party already has a rule that if a candidate participates in a debate outside their official schedule, then you cannot participate in one of their official debate.
This is an anti-democratic rule that does not support the needs of the middle-class. This is one of the many reasons I have stopped donating to the party. I will only donate to candidates of my choosing.
