Well, this is lame — CNN is reportedly removing the most compelling form of question from the next round of Democratic presidential debates. We’re all for shutting up a candidate who consistently interrupts — yeah, we’re looking at you, Marianne Williamson — but no show of hands on policy issues?

Well, that does away with the peer pressure you could feel at work when a show of hands was called for on MSNBC. Remember when every single candidate raised his or her hand when asked if illegals should receive free health care? Besides looking great in a Trump reelection ad, that was a great way to pin candidates down on issues — even if Kamala Harris would backtrack the next day as always.

Well, they could … and did. Elizabeth Warren was particularly good at that.

This is a terrible decision by a terrible network.
