The Debate

The format of last night's gubernatorial debate left a lot to be desired:

Last night's Tennessee gubernatorial debate featured all three Republican candidates-Bill Haslam, Ron Ramsey, and Zach Wamp-as well as the lone Democrat, Mike McWherter, in a format that was less than desirable. While it is understandable that candidates should be expected to finish the debate within a reasonable time frame, and rules should be established to insure that they answer questions quickly, most of the time candidates were only given 45 seconds to answer a question, and there were several cases where it was clear that the candidate was about to get to the meat of their answer when the bell rang.
