Huckabee Forum #3
Don't miss tonight's forum in Ohio on Foxnews, 8-10 PM ET. Attending are Romney, Santorum, and Gingrich. The forum gives each candidate an equal allotment of time alone with Huckabee acting as moderator, while the audience asks questions of the candidates in turn. It's unique in that the candidates aren't allowed to talk about each other: only themselves, their plans, experience, policies, etc. I learned a lot about each candidate in South Carolina through Huckabee's second forum. I'm sure you'll be able to watch a video online after the fact if the time is inconvenient for you. Since this is a 2 hour chunk of broadcast time, I expect each candidate will have 25-30 minutes of time to answer questions and present solutions for our country's problems. This length of time allows the candidates to really answer questions in detail instead of merely superficially, as opposed to standard debate format. Huckabee doesn't say much himself, and certainly isn't wasting any time bringing up non-issues as many liberal news networks have in prior GOP debates.
