Debate Time

One of the things I enjoyed about Friday night's debate between Sens. John McCain and Barack Obama was the balance of it in terms of time.  Jim Lehrer, the moderator, mentioned once or twice that the two candidates were even on time, meaning that they'd had about the same chances to make their points.  If any of you have studied the media, you might've heard the phrase "equal time," which applies to giving each major candidate an even chance to state his case.  I thought Friday's debate was a good example of that policy in action.
