Presidential debates were amazing TV

I woke up Tuesday morning not even wanting to open my eyes. What was the point? Why go on? What does it all really mean now that we will never see Barack Obama and Mitt Romney on the same debate stage again?

I’m sorry, but these weren’t just presidential face-offs. This was the greatest reality show in the history of television. This wasn’t only about politics and leadership, but the entirety of the human condition.
