Note on Jim Lehrer as moderator of the debate
“Based on what the goal was, I saw it as successful,” Lehrer said in an interview with Politico. “I’ve always said this and finally I had a chance to demonstrate it: The moderator should be seen little and heard even less. It is up to the candidates to ask the follow-up questions and challenge one another.” . . .Notably, Mr. Lehrer's boss at PBS was unwilling to defend the job that Lehrer did. I suspect that is consistent with so many liberals who blame Lehrer for Obama doing such a bad job. If so (and that occurs despite Obama being given much more time), it just shows PBS's liberal bias.
UPDATE: Sean Hannity interviews Jim Lehrer about the debate here.
