Yesterday, John McCain's campaign broached the idea of a series of joint town hall meetings with Barack Obama. That's so 20th century.
The Obama campaign responded that he preferred Lincoln-Douglas debates. So 19th century.
What would be equally edifying, but reflect the milieu of the current millennium? A reality show, of course.

There'd be drama. There'd be suspense. There'd be romance.
