New Orleans Mayoral Debate To Be Broadcast Live on MSNBC 17 April 2006



I'm sure you have all heard this by now. The April 17th New Orleans Mayoral Debate will be aired on MSNBC. Chris Matthews of Hardball will moderate with Norman Robinson of WDSU here in New Orleans. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/12167858/

I hope that the 7 candidates invited to participate realize that they will be on a national stage representing "our" city. The term "the world is watching" has never had more meaning to us.

No "chocolate City" type of quotes for the National media needed. Please!

Gee, I sure hope Ms. Butler will be in the debate. I can't think of anyone else that I'd like to represent us for Louisiana politics. By the way, is she out of jail yet?

I'm not just worried about our representatives, I'm curious about whether Matthews will inject his own ego and opinions into it.

Personally, not a big fan of Chris Matthews and his show SOFTBALL. He will indeed inject his ego and "talking point" opionion right into it.


So does Peggy Wilson wheel out the 1987-era "welfare queen" bread and butter to a national audience?

Can't wait to see what happens when the candidates talk over each other and how Mr. Matthews and Mr. Robinson react. Hopefully the candidates will remember they are on literally on the national stage. I'm also curious if Norman Robinson is getting a bonus at some point for all of his air time lately? It seems he's been interviewing any person that is willing to sit in "the hot seat".

Broadcasted?

I think the correct word is Broadcast.

I would be a lot more entertaining if instead of getting Matthews they got Daryll Hammond from SNL to do a Chris Matthews impresonation.
