Unfortunately, moderator Jim Lehrer did not ask the presidential candidates about the Supreme Court during tonight's debate – in spite of the high stakes and the strong public interest, as is discussed in the previous post to this Blog. Yes, the candidates discussed important issues and what they would do over the next four years. But a change in even one Supreme Court justice could change America for decades.
But there are three more chances, starting with the vice presidential debate on October 11. So please ask moderator Martha Raddatz to press the vice presidential candidates on this issue. You can contact her at Martha.firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet her @martharaddatz
