I was looking forward to listening to the debate between Taylor and Shuler because I am tired of the dirty campaigns. I was hoping to see some positive comments. I think people just want to know exactly how candidates feel about the issues, because we are smart enough to know a candidate is not going to brag on his opponent.

I believe both parties are at fault for the fact that a debate could not be arranged between the incumbent Taylor and the challenger Shuler. Taylor, like most Republicans, tries to put the blame on Shuler and his office, when, in fact, he put conditions that he knew would be very difficult for a challenger to meet. Shuler might have accepted a Sunday afternoon or evening time had he been willing to give up his church and family day and time. But who knows whether Taylor would have found some reason not to debate Shuler at that time.
I am not overly excited about Shuler's candidacy, although he might turn out to be quite a populist in Congress. But Taylor needs to be defeated. I can't believe that a congressman representing western North Carolina is so environmentally unfriendly. A friend mailed me the Wall Street Journal article on his landholdings. He is just a rubber stamp for the BushAdministration's failed and failing policies on the war, the environment, education and just about any other thing you can name. Thank you;
