    Piers, this fellow in the picture has an AK-47 assault rifle. Why do you suppose he needs that? Not enough gun control in Syria I suppose.

    Excellent format...however, once again, we are miissng the "debate" portion of the debate. I want to see the candidates defend their positions against each other. I understand that timing is critical in a broadcast like this and there was a desire to pose as many questions as possible, but perhaps a themed debate would work. We do have almost a year and a half left before we even vote...there is plenty of time for debates focusing on one or two topics. I must say it was much better to see fellow citizens asking questions instead of talking heads...and they were good questions.
