Request for David Broder, cont'd

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

Again with the town hall debate moaning?

We mentioned last week that Broder has been incessant with his complaint about the series of town hall forums John McCain wanted to have never took place and how they never took place. For Broder, the forums could've changed everything and they represent one of the most important issues of the entire campaign. For real.

Well, Broder's back today to take another whack:

That was one of many disappointments in the general election. A potentially captivating experience was lost when Obama declined McCain's invitation to join him in weekly town halls, to stand together and answer voters' questions.

Personally, we saw the one town how forum the two candidates agreed to, and we're not sure we would've wanted to watch nine more.

Steve Benen has more on what he calls the "town hall myth."
