Fowler and McCall debate over the presidential candidate’s positions
By Jonathan Williams
Last night I attended a debate between former DNC Chairman Don Fowler and current RNC Committeeman Glenn McCall. This event was advertised as a “post presidential debate debate” and mainly consisted of a moderator asking each representative to pick apart the presidential candidate’s statements from the third and final debate.
Overall, I thought the debate was well done. Both Fowler and McCall actually answered the questions and the moderator actually asked good follow up questions along with making sure each participant answered the original question.
The following is the debate in whole in chronological order, which I broke it into eight parts with each part dealing with a certain topic/question. It might be good to watch the first video just so you know the set up and the introductions, otherwise you can jump around from video to video. Just to let you know who is who, Don Fowler is located on the right and Glenn McCall is located on the left of the moderator.
First topic, after the introductions were made, was their thoughts on the Bailout.
Next, the moderator asked about ‘Joe the Plumber’ who’s name each candidate invoked during the debate.
Following that, each participant spoke about the idea of allowing the President line item veto power.
Next they discussed energy policy and in particular offshore oil drilling and nuclear. (Both Fowler and McCall are pro-nuclear).
They each discussed the idea of negative campaigning in this election and how it compared to past elections.
Next they discussed fair trade policy.
Education was tackled next with Glenn McCall giving some interesting insight into the problem.
The last topic discussed was Health Care, with each participant articulating what exactly the healthcare industry will look like under their respected candidates.
