Tap, tap tapper

I enjoy the commentary from an up and coming ABC journalist in the U.S. named Jake Tapper. He writes a daily blog and adds a little humour to the equation.

On one of the Sunday talk shows, he floated the idea of scrapping ‘debates’ in favour of ‘war gaming’. Essentially, his idea was that each candidate would be given a series of real world scenarios and would be asked to address them (with their team). Their decisions would be fed into the computer program (I did some of this in college) and they would be scored on their effectiveness.

Interesting idea. More of a joke really but I got to thinking that this approach would force candidates to get beyond rhetoric.
