Good news.
A female moderator should be able to inquire why Romney/Ryan have chosen to take women's rights back to the beginning of 1900.
We all will be tuned in and listening attentively to their answer.

So is that what I need to do to get all the presidential candidates in on a debate? I would love for the media to pay as much attention to them as they do to Romney and Obama...or Bieber for that matter.

Megan Kelly is the obvious choice for this debate. She's rock solid on the facts, fair, impartial and doesn't let someone get away with spin.

Hey St. George --- Maybe you can actually substantiate your unfounded claim? Maybe? I'm surprised that got by the censors since they don't allow personal attacks on these pages.

And all moderators are die-hard far left liberals. Who'd 'a thought?

@Uncle Charles
Megan Kelly? I agree with you, but isn't she from that evil FoxNews channel that this paper and other MSM despise?

"Fair and balanced" reporting, per the MSM, means reporting from the left's perspective, and denying free speech to anyone else.

So we've got some balance with gender how about persuasion. A conservative moderator...anyone...anyone?

i have watched Crowley in the State of the Union on CNN from time to time. She actually does a decent job from what I have seen. IMO

In my opinion the debates will be tilted to the President and the selection of Ms. Crowley is sadly just another example. There will be subtle forces working to apply the liberal point of view through each debate by the way questions are asked and the Dem's are drooling over the results already!

I couldn't agree more with Uncle Charles. Who would agree with having three lefties moderate these debates? Haven't we been to this rodeo in the past and learned our lesson. The Republicans should have at least held out for picking one of the moderators, i.e. Brett Baer, Megyn Kelly or Britt Hume.

Centerville, UT

Is there some sort of rule that the moderators have to be liberals? Candy Crawly is hardly an impartial moderator. Why not Megan Kelley? And why not people like Chris Wallace? It's ridiculous that all the debates have to be done by the old media.
