What's the big idea behind these debates?
1. Why create stress upon our president?
2. Why let unnecessary "straws" be laid upon him until perchance he "breaks" under them?
3. Why provide for gloating aspirants that for which they are watching and hoping?
Why not, rather:
1. Shield him from undue analysis and criticism?
2. Assign to "lesser" dignitaries all such sparring with political snipers?
3. Protect our president, preserve him, pray for him?
