All candidates and debate monitors need to stop talking about who is the more or less liberal/progressive, conservative, feminist, racist, religious, etc. These topics are not the most important to voters of all ages. We need to know where each candidate stands and what their plans are on: education, economy, employment (high-paying, full-time jobs), health, welfare, safety, security, Mideast, famine, homeless (especially veterans). They also need to talk about balancing the budget and reducing the debt.
Their plans need to include what, how, by when, “as proven by,” and cost and effect as well as affect. This latter data I’m anxious to see in all their ads (no negative ads) and hear in their debates (no attacks).
