CBS Democratic presidential debate canceled
If you're sick of hearing about Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, then this should come as welcome news. According to TV Newser, the North Carolina Democratic Party has canceled a scheduled debate between the two remaining candidates. It was set to air on CBS. Katie Couric and Bob Schieffer were scheduled to moderate. It would have probably earned decent ratings, too, since CBS planned to air the hour long debate following an episode of 60 Minutes.
According to the NCDP website, the debate was canceled due to "time constraints and logistical issues." I suppose that makes sense. Both Clinton and Obama are running around like crazy in an effort to secure last minute votes during the final Democratic primaries. Pennsylvania's is today.
I'm not so sure this is as big a loss as CBS thinks. At this point, who would have expected there to be two Democrats running strong? Most probably assumed that by now there would be a presumptive nominee to start squaring off against John McCain. There isn't, though, and both candidates are saturating the evening news. I feel like I know where they each stand at this point, so I'm not even sure if I would have even watched the debate. Would you have?
