@TJ, I was considering beginning a thread similar to yours, except I was going to word the title of mine a bit different, my title would have been "The DNC, Money Talks".
I heard that these debates were going to be split into two, on separate days, and I'd also heard the the field was trimmed down from 20+ something candidates to 20. Why? Here's the reasoning behind the trimming:
"A candidate must register at least 1 percent in three different DNC-approved polls 14 days prior to the debate or raise money from at least 65,000 unique donors, having a minimum of 200 contributors in each of at least 20 states. If more than 20 candidates meet both thresholds, candidates with the highest polling average will be given preference, followed by candidates with the most unique donors."
@Dutch, It's about money coming in, not about vetting.
