    It was criminal that there was not one debate question in 2008 concerning climate change/global warming. I pray that the moderators this year will not make the same mistake.

    Bob Schieffer is probably the most sensible and discerning reporters since Walter Conkrite and Reliable Sources is one of the most innovative shows to come along since 60 minutes. So for that combination to blithely discuss the selection of moderators, pretending to be ignorant of the lack of racial diversity amongst the selected moderators was disappointing at best and "see no evil" disingenuous at worst. You both can see the speck in the eyes of others but you chose to ignore the big leaf of spinach in your own toothy grin. Ok, mixed metaphor, but you are too smart not to know what I mean.
