During the Lincoln / Douglas style debates, the last question Cain asked Gingrich was “If you were my VP, what kind of responsibilities would you want to have?” ...or something like that. Think everyone was laughing at that :)
Cain-Gingrich would be the best ticket the GOP has put up since Reagan-____.
Off-topic, but it cracks me up when people call them “Lincoln/Douglas style debates”. The Cain/Gingrich dual press conference wasn’t anything at all like a L/D debate. About the only thing that they have in common was each had 2 participants.
In the Lincoln/Douglass debates, there was an actual debate. Each debate was about one topic (it was slavery in the actual L/D debates). The 1st candidate spoke for 60 minutes about the subject. The 2nd candidate responded for 90 minutes, then the 1st candidate rebutted for 30 minutes.
I can’t imagine doing such a thing today, but it is a travesty to call what they Cain and Gingrich did a “Lincoln/Douglas style debate”.
