FLASH 8/5/08 11:31:52 AM ET: Presidential debate moderators: Jim Leherer of PBS, Tom Brokaw of NBC, Gwen Ifill of PBS and Bob Scheiffer of CBS… Developing…

All of them are sensible and intelligent (why two from PBS is a little odd…why not one from Fox?) and will do a good job.

(And it could be LOTS worse…think Olbermann and Matthews!)

    That’s a good bunch. Can’t stand Chris Matthews.

  • Gwen Ifill has been a little too excited about Barack Obama this cycle for my liking…

  • wavemaker

    Please. He’s a stuffed shirt. Never known him to be particularly incisive in his interviewing.

    Leherer and Scheiffer, great. Ifill, I agree, no doubting where her sympathies lie. Better than most journalists, I’d agree.

  • Republican Ram Rod Radio
  • These 4 people are journalists first and liberals second.  It could be a lot worse.

  • Festus Garvey

    …when you wrote the four selected…”are sensible and intelligent”

    Nader and Barr are invited?


    Ah well. I project these debates will be the same correographed crap that are guaranteed to leave the audience yawning.

  • we just attach electrodes to the debate participants….and the moderator gets to zap ’em if they’re not answering the friggin’ question.

    Then charge pay per view….’cause there’s millions that refuse to watch these non-debate “debates” because they’re a farce.
