Candidates, Party of 8

I missed last night’s debate. I was out meeting a friend’s firstborn for the first time. Gorgeous child.

Anyway, I’ve been reading up on the debate this morning, and via Glenn found Stephen’s take on the night. His closing paragraph:

For the future, I’d like to propose what I call the Algonquin Round Table Debate. No moderator, no stopwatches, no buzzers or red lights, no YouTube, and, please, no Anderson Cooper or Chris Matthews. Instead, put all the candidates around a big table, ply them with first-rate food and liquor, and just let them talk and argue with one another until—or beyond—last call. Now that, for Democrats or Republicans, would be an event worth watching.
