WMCA call-radio talk show host and nationally-renowned conservative blogger, Kevin McCullough, has called on New Yorkers and American citizens everywhere to register a protest against Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton's unwillingness to debate on prime time television against her Republican opponent John Spencer.
McCullough made his own protest known today on the air when he interviewed John Spencer's Communication Director, Rob Ryan, in a discussion that was also moderated by Mary Catherine Ham.
If the most important thing in a free and democratic society is to be able to hear from the candidates who are seeking your vote so that you can make the most informed choice possible, isn't then incumbent upon the candidates to allow you to see their ideas side by side?
Is there a more democratic act that can be done than to allow the give and take of freely formed - but opposing ideas to be judged by the merits of the voters who will vote for them?
Hillary doesn't much believe so. Only willing to do two debates - on the very low rated cable channel NY1. Why can't she allow all New Yorkers - one's with satellite service, and broadcast only reception to be able to hear her ideas?
After all if she is so far ahead that there's "no way she can lose," what's the problem?
John Spencer is a good man, and he ran a nearly all democratic town from bankruptcy to prosperity - as a Republican, and he has the backing of both the GOP and Conservative parties in the state of New York.
What's Hillary afraid of?
Please contact Senator Clinton's office today; E-mail, call, fax or tell in person that New York deserves more sunlight on this U.S. Senate race -- and certainly prime time debates.
