Video of Baldwin-Nader Debate

Here is the video of last night’s presidential debate between Chuck Baldwin, the Constitution Party nominee, and the independent Ralph Nader. C-SPAN2 carried the debate live, and C-SPAN rebroadcast it today.

You might want to fast forward past the speechifying of the moderator, Chris Hedges, who was even more insufferable than Tom Brokejaw. Hedges evidently didn’t realize that people tuned in to hear the candidates and not him. I found myself shouting at the TV for him to shut up.

The Libertarian Bob Barr, in my view, hurt his candidacy by skipping this debate. He reportedly only wants to debate Nader one-on-one.

Cynthia McKinney, the Green Party nominee, issued a paranoid statement that she was bypassing the debate because it was arranged by Nader’s supporters (Hedges is a Nader backer). McKinney, who is only on the ballot in 32 states– including Mississippi– was on C-SPAN today. She is already talking about running again for Congress or some other office.

I believe that Baldwin, who is not nearly as well known as Nader, helped his candidacy considerably by participating in this debate.

Howard Phillips, the Constitution Party’s founder and presidential nominee in 1992, 1996, and 2000, was in the audience.

Thanks to the Independent Political Report for the link to the video.
