The Commission on Presidential Debates (COPD)requires all candidates to sign a 30+ page contract. Some of the requirements are: 1) May NOT appear in any debate or forum except those sponsored by COPD 2) No opening statement 3) No props, charts, ect 4) May not use video of Debate for his campaign 5) May not ask the other candidate any questions The commission has a policy a candidate must be drawing at least 15% of national polls to participate. Do you consider this standard too high? Other thoughts? Note the COPD is a joint venture of the Republican and Democrat National Committees. According to Wiki, the League of Women Voters ended their participation of the Debates due to the many demands of the candidates.
