32 Crowdsourced Questions for the Presidential Debates

There are 4 comments on the Aug 16, 2012, www.theatlantic.com story titled 32 Crowdsourced Questions for the Presidential Debates. In it, www.theatlantic.com reports that:

Yesterday, I made a plea for better questions for presidential debates . Here's what you came up with:

1) Can you describe legislation which you think would be good for the country if only it could be legally enacted, but which is unconstitutional?

2) What lessons do you, as current (or potential) commander-in-chief, take from America's war in Iraq? If you think the war was a mistake, how will you conduct our foreign policy to avoid a repeat of that experience? If you still stand by American intervention, why was it a good idea?

3) Wade Michael Page, Nidal Malik Hasan, and Robert Bales were either currently enlisted or military veterans. The rate of suicide by veterans is at an all-time high. As the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces, what specific steps would you take to deal with the mental health crisis affecting our soldiers and veterans?

It would be GREAT to see the candidates FACE these kinds of questions.

Unfortunately, chances are slim to nill that this type of questioning would ever happen in the real world.

I agree, and I'd settle for 6 through 20.

They don't mean the way you do it. They stay on their feet.
