CNN Shortens Dem Debate: Are The Candidates TOO OLD TO STAND FOR THREE HOURS?
Next week’s Democratic Party debate has been cut by one hour, the Weekly Standard reports:
CNN Shrinks Dem Debate By One Hour
Last month, CNN hosted a Republican presidential primary debate. The main event was a 3-hour affair.
Next week, the same network will host a Democratic presidential primary debate. But this time, the debate will be one hour shorter — it’ll span only 2 hours.
Of course there’s a big difference in the number of candidates in each of the debates. The Republican debate featured 11 candidates. The Democratic debate will probably be made up of 5 candidates.
The Democrats have only 6 debates planned. Republicans have twice the number on the schedule.
Ann Althouse speculates that it’s because the candidates are too old to stand for three hours.
