If you could choose presidential nominees to go head-to-head in a debate for the presidency of the United States of America, whom would you choose?
I ask because family get togethers at my parents’ house tend to devolve into shouting matches, but this last one did not. Why, you may or may not be asking? Because I – in a display of saint-like patience – allowed my mind to drift past discussions on the relative merits of Santorum vs. Ron Paul and, instead, pictured my ideal election debate, one in which I chose the nominees and asked my questions. You know, there are so many people I would like to see argue with one another. Sarah Michelle Gellar vs. Mel Gibson (no contest: Ms. Gellar would win); Barbara Walters vs. Ann Coulter; Sotomayor vs. Dr. Laura Schlessinger. In the end, however, my ultimate would be Elmo vs. Big Bird in a brawl to the death over topics like healthcare, education, and tax reform.
What about you? Whom would you pick for a presidential debate? Ladies and gents, I really can’t wait to hear you chime in on this one.
