Not really a debate

There's a lot of talk on CNN today (which I have had on to see the SpaceShipOne updates) about the ground rules for tomorrow's presidential campaign debate.

My take on all the crazy restrictions, is that they were created to keep the 'debate' from being a real debate. For years now these things have really just been simultaneous press conferences, and a chance for the campaign's staffers to do spin. But there's little or no interaction, or debate.

It's not a debate.
