Well, well, Ms. Ifill has written book,* The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama*, which features black politicians. Good for her. Sounds like a book that could be very interesting.
But this raises an obvious question: should she recuse herself, or should she be removed from moderating the debate? I say absolutely. It seems to me that she has a financial interest in Obama winning. And that a moderator, she, at the very least, should be able to present an air of non-bias. I’m amazed that this is even a possibility.
Thoughts? Or should I say, let the hand-waving begin.
