The campaign should challenge all contenders to a series of 1 hour round-robin one on one face offs. I suggest each candidate brings his campaign manager to ask what he considers the opponent's 3 most vulnerable positions. It should be tough. The recorded videos would be offered on Youtube. This would be the format.
2 minute introduction polite time.
1 minute question
5 minute answer
2 minute rebuttal
30 second catch breath cushion
final vote for me not you - 3 minutes each
thank you 10 seconds simultaneous
The tier two candidates would do this to offer their agenda to the public and once that happened the front runners could be shamed into opening up. Each of the current contenders would invest 7 hours testing their opponents and we would invest 28 hours to identify the best person.
