Up for Debate

Tonight, the two mainstream candidates for US president, Joe Biden and Donald Trump, face off in the first debate of the election season.

This event, sponsored by CNN, appears to be less of a debate and more of a series of back-and-forth interviews with the two men. There will be no audience, and in an effort to avoid some of the complications of the 2020 debates, a candidate’s mike will be turned off when he reaches the end of his allotted speaking time.

With the race appearing to be neck-in-neck, there’s much speculation as to which candidate will manage to outmaneuver the other in this public forum. Will Biden hit Trump hard on his recent convictions? Will Trump bring up Hunter Biden’s recent conviction? Will Biden look old and feeble or vibrant and “jacked up”? Will Trump follow the rules or speak out of turn, as is his habit.

We’ll know in a few hours. But what we probably won’t know from this spectacle is which of these two candidates will be a better choice to lead the country for the next four years. If it were an option, it appears most Americans would probably choose, None of the Above.

Who will offer the best choice for America in November? After tonight, that question will likely still be up for debate.
