March 24, 2012: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Opinion: Suggestions for a more civil debate this year

Posted by & filed under 2012 Election, In the Press, Role of Independent Voters

Can we have a more civilized debate and civicly minded discussion about political issues in this hyper-partisan election year?  Ad agency executive Brian Bennett takes a stab at it, noting “Independent voters have no choice but to place hope in what they conclude is the right candidate. So both left and right must court them – the left and right, which have alienated more voters than ever before.”  Members, what are your ideas for some ground rules or other ways to civilize debate this year?
