  2. Think Tank 1110am Green Party & Libertarian Party Candidates

    Should the Green Party & Libertarian Party candidates be allowed to debate? Should the Commission on Presidential Debates reconsider their policy of allowing only candidates who have an average of 15% in the 5 national polls into the fall debate? Using this model only Clinton & Trump will be allowed to take the stage, excluding Gary Johnson (the Libertarian Party) who has 8.8% and Jill Stein (the Green Party) with 3.4%. What if voters want to hear all points of view so they can make an educated decision? Pew Research Center took a survey in June. They found that 4 in 10 voters think neither Clinton nor Trump would make a good president. They also found that voters are frustrated with the two-party system. Another poll by USA Today & Suffolk University found that 54% of voters want third party options. What do you think? Include all candidates in the debates or not?

    "Do you think there is life on any other planet? An international team of astronomers says it has discovered ""clear evidence"" of a planet orbiting the closest star to our sun and which has a temperature suitable for liquid water to exist on its surface. It may be the best candidate yet for life beyond our own solar system. The story appears in the journal Nature.
