I would love to see something like this. When you say equal time do you mean giving equal time to every declared candidate on the debate stage or just providing a platform for every candidate to reach a wider audience and not even have a debate in the first place?
These debates are a joke anyway, so it would be nice to have something like that. Everyone knows what each candidate is going to say and most people are watching only to hopefully catch a major gaffe by a candidate. Giving each candidate a set amount of time to state their case would be something I'd like to hear more than twenty people interrupting and talking over each other.
The only ting would be how stations would conduct things on the Democratic side. Would each candidate get more time to speak because there are far fewer candidates or should they get the same amount of time as each Republican?
I know all of this is wishful thinking and none of it will ever come to fruition, but it is fun to think about.
