Imabench, DK, and I have agreed to participate in a three-way Presidential debate sometime in the near future.

At this moment in time, there is no moderator for the debate. Also, VP candidates will not be allowed in the Hangout.

If you want to submit questions, you can submit them anonymously here (but if you wish you may include your name): https://www.surveymonkey.com...

There's only one submission per device, but you can ask as many as you want.

With that, I hope to see my opponents in a Hangout soon.

VP's were not included because imabench mentioned not wanting to debate me specifically. Any one that would want to see VP's debate or discuss the election, I am more than willing to do a separate hangout where VP's are included.

I'd debate you, though I am in no way connected with Bench, and he probably wouldn't even approve of me doing it.

I endorse Bench, but have had plenty of negative and positive things to say about both campaigns. I think I'd be fair

The debate I wanted to have was on abolitionism, and I was wanting to do it live. Still down?

I certainly do not approve of you doing it since you have been against my campaign for the entire election up until 12 hours ago, and still deny that my platform is abolitionist in the first place

Live and I don't consider his platform true abolitionism, but I could defend his platform.

While I'd definitely be interested in hearing his platform explained in much better detail, I'd prefer Imabench himself defend his platform in a live setting. That's apparently not going to happen If I am there. But I am still willing to do a vanilla debate on Abolitionism exclusive of Imabench's platform in a live setting. If you are up for it, let's PM each other and set up a date and time.

It would be disrespectful to debate a vice president around the time of the presidential debate. I would be interested in a more generic "who would make a better president debate", but I won't do that live and won't do it without Bench's blessing because of the message it could send.

I don't think many people would find this dis-respectful, and I certainly don't. We can ask DK and the other candidates though to make sure. It would be a professional live debate, nothing to worry over.

It would be disrespectful, because I have been advocating pretty hard for Bench, and debating a vice president will make it look as if I am unofficially part of his campaign.

Maybe I am the only person who thinks that, but it feels wrong, and despite appearances to the contrary, I do have a code of honor I like to stick to. Even if novody else understands it.

Yes! Let's give the abolitionist, who initially presented the presidency as a disgrace, the position to moderate the presidential debate!

How about Lannan or FourTrouble? They both seem reasonable and fair. Someone should ask one of them to mod.
