AUSTIN (TX) -- The cancellation in the past two days of two planned nationally televised debates because of candidates’ “scheduling conflicts” and unwillingness to participate smacks of “manipulation by some candidates who would rather run and hide than defend their records and their positions on the war,” Ohio Congressman and Democratic Presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich said today while campaigning in Texas.

The media blessed Democratic front runners are ducking out of head to head debates in New Hampshire and Nevada preferring to rely on the daily face time provided by the mainstream media which excludes the voices of their opponents. These debates should be a collaborative effort by the Democratic party which pulls the best ideas from all segments of the party and crafts them into a platform for the 2008 elections. They might as well hold the election on a tv show, "American Political Idol", given the way they are turning the campaign into a battle of personality cults rather than being about issues. Hillary and Obama would get their ends rear end stomped in a debate that in any way deviated from their talking points.

Other candidates were trying to sidestep the Nevada debate because they claimed that the sponsoring television network, Fox News Channel, was conservatively biased


If this is a debate between Democrats, this point should be moot regardless of your feelings about Fox news!

“I’m prepared to discuss the war, health care, trade, or any other issue anytime, anywhere, with any audience, answering any question from any media. And any candidate who won’t shouldn’t be President of the United States.”


Holy hell... I agree with a Democrat! Someone sound the alarm!
