I think it would also be cool to have the opponents question each other for a portion.
Obama was one end of the spectrum and Biden was the other. Unfortunately, in my opinion, the facts were sometimes lost in the presentation.
Heres a great read up on the facts both guys fudged last night: http://factcheck.org/2012/10/veep-debate-violations/
I agree, the debates seem so scripted. Allowing candidates to actually question one another would be epic. All we have now are scripted answers to questions asked by the moderator.
By the way - "cone of silence, then they could answer the question there way." It would be "their" in this case. "There" has meaning as location. "There they are!" "Their" has meaning as possession. "That is their apple." - Just a pointer.
