Sep 7, 2012 by democracynow – As President Obama accepts the Democratic nomination to seek four more years in the White House, we host a debate on his presidency with Glen Ford of Black Agenda Report and Michael Eric Dyson, professor at Georgetown University and author of numerous books. Ford calls Obama the “more effective evil” for embracing right-wing policies and neutralizing effective opposition, while Dyson argues Obama provides the best and obvious choice for progressive change within the confines of the U.S. political system.

  18. This is a paradigm of what a real “debate” should be. Informed, well-reasoned and articulated views expressed, discussed, critiqued, all in an intellectually honest spirit and with mutual respect. Neither participant interrupts the other, each listens carefully to the other, in mutual respect and courtesy. No shouting, and a reasonable amount of time given to each to express his views and arguments–which can only be expressed in such time-frames, not in MSM seven-second slogans/sound bites.
