On Live Audiences at Political Debates

Last night's debate, like any and all others of this election and other recent ones, was cheapened by the presence of a rowdy studio audience.  CNN's got a guest commentary up about this subject, and it is worth a read.  Bottom line for me is that the crowds distract from good debate, break up the flow of the conversation, and generally display boorish behavior.  The Party needs to run these debates on cleared soundstages--and the quality of the debates would improve.
