It’s debatable

So Obama lost the debate. What debate? I’ve debated and coached debaters; I’m not certain I saw a debate the other night. Debaters in academic contests appear at their venues never knowing which side of an issue they must defend; debaters must be ready to defend either. Most candidates appear to have a general idea about their position, and some actually have been seen on both sides of an issue. But I still don’t want to call this a debate. And I certainly do not want pundits telling me who won whatever they did that night.
