The Florida You Tube Debate

Joe Carter at Evangelical Outpost gives his reasons for supporting the drive to pressure Republican Presidental candidates into participating in the YouTube Presidental debate:

Just as the Democrats spurned the Fox News debate, some Republicans are talking about ditching the long-planned YouTube debate. As a concerned (reluctant) Republican, I've signed on as a co-sponsor of Save the Debate in order to respectfully ask the GOP to reconsider. . . . My reason for supporting this effort may differ from my fellow co-sponsors. I believe that the last YouTube debate did made a mockery of the debate process -- and yet was still more useful than any to the others that have been held to date.
The rest of what he says is pretty interesting.
