I think all the candidates should do these. Presidential debates will be a good way for us as voters to compare and analyze specific presidential styles, and what each person will actually bring to the site.

I feel they would be both informative and helpful in determining the voters decisions, rather than popularity contests.

For example, I may vote for someone originally because he has a good personality, or a better one than his opponent.

But maybe his opponent carries a specific belief that I like more than the others.

Well A presidential debate sounds like a great Idea to hash all this out. Based on the arguments presented, I as well as other voters can make a more informed decision about who we want to vote for.

I strongly suggest that the candidates participate in a debate, before I officially determine who I will vote for.

All of them. I don't know who all is running also, so this would probably be a good way for me to familiarize myself with them

InsertNameHere, lovelife, and royalpaladin have recently all made their way back to DDO. This being a threat to the quality of the site, how do you plan on dealing with this issue?

This is about my ability to continue to run this site responsibly as a mature individual and your inability to do so.

To prove this, I will gladly take you up on your offer to debate for the presidency.

I second this motion. I also ask people to consider their opinions of Airmax simply due to his proposed reform or personality.

While Airmax is a good member and certainly contributes, the worth of his nomination, as well as that of any other, should be carried out in the form of debates.

I went ahead and challenged jimtimmy (even though he didn't acknowledge my challenge) to a debate exactly the same as the one Airmax1227 accepted.

I am all for a debate.
We spend too much our time measuring compassion for those in needs by measuring inputs. How much money are we spending? How many programs are we creating? But we are not focusing on outcomes. Are these programs working? Are people getting out of poverty?

The fact that I would like to see a debate.

I don't know how this proves 16kadams has a multi account.
