DEAR EDITOR:

The moderator is the leader of the debate. He or she designs and asks the questions, keeps track of time, and is responsible for conduct of the debate.

Mr. Wallace quickly lost control. Had I been Mr. Biden, I would have said, “Mr. Wallace, take charge of this debate”. Had I been Mr. Wallace, the third time the President interrupted Mr. Biden, I would have stood up and said, “Mr. President, your side agreed to debate rules allowing Mr. Biden to answer without interruption. If you are not interested in honoring that commitment, this debate is over. Will you allow him to speak uninterrupted, or is this debate over? If the President interrupted again or made any comment, I would end the debate.

America deserves better and the world expects better.
