Good question since one side insisted on knowing the subject matter of the questions before hand thus will be able to practice stock answer. It will be interesting to see if either candidate tries to take a question off line to fool the other into giving a dumb response. So we get to see a debate or 3 but we will probably not get to hear the candidates actual policy.

Well, the debate between Stein, Johnson, Goode, and Anderson in Chicago on October 23rd will probably have some pretty interesting policy discussions. If that's what you are after.

Hi JJt, I'm sure that Obama has policies and I am even more sure that Romney does not.
