Who picked the questions? I don't think this is Bush or Kerry's fault.

Jim Lehrer (the moderator) came up with the questions - I think.

Third world debt relief, AIDS. I was hoping they would touch on it they did talk about the African Union however that one I was a little lost on.

AIDS, and they both glossed over the Sudan, neither gave concrete responses to what they would/should/could do...

Yes, Lehrer wrote the questions.

Too bad. I guess he felt that Iraq was the "sexy" topic of the evening.

I'm annoyed that the AIDS pandemic wasn't mentioned as it's a major crisis with horrifying consequences. It's about like leaving the Black Death out of a history of the later Middle Ages, something no decent medievalist would do. But, Jim Lehrer did the questions, not the candidates or their representatives. So blame him.

AIDS, third world debt.

I'm assuming...or at least hoping...that the environment makes it into one of the domestic debates.

AIDS, the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. Its so important but rarely brought up by either campaign.

AIDS and debt, for sure.

Also: India/Pakistan. That part of the world is only going to be a bigger problem.

Good point pax, it's really ridiculous that Pakistan in particular wasn't mentioned. I think that country scares me more than anyplace else. If they knocked off the dictator next week the Deobandi Muslims would start to make life miserable for Pakistanis fast. They're the ones who started the whole Taliban tradition.

In regard to Pax and Verte (I will make the bleeding obvious point that has allready been made) And they have the nucelar weapons ready to go. If Pakistan were to fall we would see a doomsday scenario eminating from the subcontinent.

AIDS wasn't overlooked - it was ignored.

AIDS and the Kyoto Protocol.


Razors pain you; Rivers are damp;
Acids stain you; And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful; Nooses give;
Gas smells awful; You might as well live.
