The Iowa Debate today

That was the most ridiculous excuse for a debate. No questions on immigration or taxes and the inexcusable inclusion of Alan Keyes. Everyone wanted to see exchanges between Gov. Romney and Gov. Huckabee, and they got none of that.

Here's my plan for the next debate: A round-robin format. First, Huckabee and Romney. Then Romney and McCain. Then McCain and Thompson. And so forth, until the contenders (and only the serious ones) have a chancce to interact with everyone. Fifteen minute slots, two questions for each slot.

For what it's worth, though I like Gov. Huckabee, I also thought Romney and Thompson did very well in a truly awful format. In fact, I wondered where the heck THAT Fred Thompson has been during the other debates.
