I searched and didn't find anything on tonights debate. If something is already out there, let me know, and MODS, kill this thread.

Nastiness expected in Town Hall Debate

Moderated by NBC News's Tom Brokaw at Belmont University in Nashville, the 90-minute session will cover questions from an audience of 80 undecided Tennessee voters. Brokaw, interim moderator of NBC's ``Meet the Press,'' will try to limit the candidates' responses to two minutes and keep the discussion on- subject.

Are these going to be totally unscripted questions from the audience, or are they going to be screened and picked out beforehand by the campaigns?

Only 80 people in the audience ? Yeah, they were cherry picked, guaranteed.

I think many of us are looking forward to this debate. However when threads are started about something like this it seems like you're purposely jumping the gun to get the first thread?

You can't call "shotgun" while we're still in the house!

Well, then alert and have the thread taken down.

My purpose was to discuss what the town hall format was going to be about and how the questions were chosen, hence the article about the debate, the quote, and the question about the questions from the audience.

Sorry if I offended anyone.
