Submission + - CNN won't pit Democrats against each other in debate (washingtonexaminer.com)

tripleevenfall writes: CNN will stage the first Democratic presidential debate this week, and debate moderator Anderson Cooper said he won't be encouraging confrontations between the candidates. This will represent a marked departure from the GOP debate hosted by CNN, which featured split-screens showing candidates' reactions, and questions designed to incite the candidates to argue personally with each other.

Electoral System That Lessig Hopes To Reform Is Keeping Him Out of the Debate (usatoday.com) 213

schwit1 writes: Lessig has raised a million dollars, which is nothing to sneeze at, but he's being given the cold shoulder by the Democrats when it comes to participating in the debates. I think he's got a good argument for being included — he's certainly as serious a candidate as some of the others, and I'm hearing a lot about his campaign.

Why are they keeping Lessig out? According to Lessig, it's for the same reason he wants in: "My view is that if we can get this message [of reform] into the debate it would change the dynamics of this Democratic primary entirely. This issue framed in this way totally blows up the Democratic primary."

Hillary and Bernie, he says, are promising the moon to voters, but can't deliver. Lessig told me, "If I can get on that stage and say the rocket can't get off the ground, and we have to change this dynamic first," the narrative shifts in a way that the leading candidates can't address.

I hope to own an EV one day, but there's definitely a keeping-up-appearances thing to it. "Not only am I wealthy enough to have an ultra-luxury car, but I'm also more enlightened than you because I'm choosing the electric one."

So you get to show off to other people even further. You get to go round telling everyone you're both more successful AND smarter than them, which is the way most people think these days.

For many people, the Leaf isn't an option because the range is so limited, and the Tesla isn't an option because the prices are so far out of reach. I'm glad for people who have been early adopters, but I'm not going to turn my nose up at other people who make choices that make sense for them.

That's my idea. If they want these prime spots right near the building that also give their cars free fuel, why not require a permit and have them pay a monthly fee? Then you can use the money to build out all the outlets you need.

As the article states, it's worse to have too few than to have none.
