Shaking Up the Debate!

Shaking Up the Debate!

Monday’s presidential debate has all the makings of something we’ve never seen before in modern politics. But beyond the expected hyperbolic verbal-sparring, will there be anything of substance that American voters will get out of the showdown? Intelligence Squared U.S., a nonpartisan organization whose goal is to raise the level of public discourse in the United States, wants to make sure there is. The organization has planned a handful of their own debates, including a viewing party at Lincoln Center following the first presidential debate that will have the audience analyze the showdown and discuss the way we debate in the U.S. ABC News correspondent and Intelligence Squared moderator John Donvan joins us once again with his take on what debates should look like versus what we may see this Monday.
