I see your point and agree to a point/ to a degree...however, both candidates were very monotone sounding with zilch excitement in their delivery.
They sounded totally scripted and rehearsed and that is why it was boring. In a debate where there is interaction between the two on the "issues",
they can't hide behind something a speech writer helped them with and something they practiced before the telecast over and over again. In a debate
often it's "impromptu" and this frankly tells us more about the person and how they truly think than any thing else.
By the way, for clarification, the room of people didn't assemble specifically for the show. What occurred was that we all happened to be there when
it came on, and someone said something like "oh I wanted to watch this" and so it was put on and it seemed initially that everyone had some interest
in it, but when it became apparent that it was not going to be a debate but rather more of the same ole' politician, "they talk and we listen"
pucky people began to start their own conversations, or simply tune it out. I mean this election thing has been going on now for several years--it's
the most drawn out election I can remember, and we all are getting tired of it.
I still can't believe they won't actually debate. I feel like someone who just got taken at a used car lot with this thing. I mean isn't this
America where there is "choices" and a real "democratic" process? If we don't stand up and yell for things here anymore, we don't get it! I'm
sick of getting the shaft in the USA and more and more it looks like we are going to get it in November.
