Three key open questions:
1) Will the media pool choose to put their video of the debates in the public domain, so folks can freely blog key moments and share them without fear of being deemed a lawbreaker?
2) Will Tom Brokaw use some bottom-up debate questions collected and voted on on Google’s site, in addition or in place of the top-down ones the Commission collected?
3) Will the Commission adopt these principles for future debates, now that the candidates from both major parties embrace them?
And one final point: Now that both Senators have affirmed the “open debate” principles, its time for citizens to do the same. Please sign up below to support the call for “open debates.” Once again, the original letter to McCain and Obama is here.
