A Political Wish
Would it be too much to ask that sometime during the upcoming general election we can be treated to a debate -- between whichever two candidates end up running -- moderated by Jon Stewart?
John McCain has been a guest on The Daily Show numerous times. Barack Obama has been on at least twice. Hillary hasn't yet, and if she turns out to be the Democratic nominee, her handlers will probably try to dissuade her from appearing. But if the contest ends up being between Obama and McCain, I think there's an excellent chance they would actually agree.
And it would be fabulous! Stewart is funny but he's also brutally honest and incredibly straightforward. He regularly discusses issues of great substance, even as he cracks everyone up with his stealthy one-liners. After all, where is it written that a Presidential debate can't be fun? Heck, I wouldn't put it past him to stage an informal one on the Daily Show by inviting both of the candidates at the same time. Seriously, though; that's something I'd really love to see.
(And PS: Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there!)
Edit: Thanks to Blogger's new "scheduled" feature, I wrote this before I saw this, posted by Movin' Meat. Based on his comments, I would guess he'd agree with me, and would eagerly lobby for such a debate.
