  •   And the Questions Didn't Help with Women (10+ / 0-)

    Nothing on abortion, birth control access or equal pay. And not only were Women ignored, they ignored immigration and Gay Rights as well. The range of Domestic topics picked out by Jim Lehrer was selected by an old White dude designed to be of interest to other old White dudes.

    •  The 10/16 debate with Candy Crowley (2+ / 0-)

      They probably decided to let her deal with the woman issues.

      •  No, that one's foreign policy (1+ / 0-)

        I think it's the third one that's supposed to be about "social issues," which I believe includes all the ladies-and-gays stuff (since we don't care about the economy, taxes, all those numbers, and foreign policy? Really?)

        •  10/16 is both foreign and domestic (1+ / 0-)

          The second presidential debate will take the form of a town meeting, in which citizens will ask questions of the candidates on foreign and domestic issues.
          The third is stricly foreign policy
          The format for the debate will be identical to the first presidential debate and will focus on foreign policy.

          No focus on social issues, other than what might emerge among other topics under Candy's "town hall".
