I watched the town hall meeting for Republicans last week from Columbia. It was the first TV broadcast that I can say I actually enjoyed.
Unlike the name-calling debates where each opponent attacks the other with nasty remarks and hollering, this program on CNN with Anderson Cooper gave insight on where each candidate stood with world affairs, the economy and what they would do if elected.
All individual interviews ended with some personal questions, i.e., what kind of music they listened to. Each candidate showed another side, a sense of humor and someone you might feel better electing.
I believe future debates should be eliminated until the general election. A standard policy should be that candidates talk about what they are going to do if elected, not continue to attack the other candidate. The circus broadcasts this election have left all dismayed with our country and they are not fruitful for us to move forward in a positive way.
Never miss a local story.
