Presidential Debate To Be Held At Raleigh's RBC Center

If Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama do in fact debate in North Carolina before the state's May 6 primary, it will take place in Raleigh at the city's arena.

The North Carolina Democratic Party said Tuesday the RBC Center
would host the debate, which would be broadcast on CBS.

The only trouble? While Clinton's campaign agreed last week to
debate on April 27, the date favored by the state party, Obama's
camp wanted to debate a week earlier

Obama spokesman Dan Leistikow said late Tuesday the campaign is
still deciding whether the April 27 date works for his schedule.

North Carolina's May 6 primary will divide 115 delegates between
the Democratic candidates.

    I actually know of some moderate people/organizations and people who fund both Republicans and Democrats who have funded Obama. Who cares where the money comes from? As long as he gets it, it doesn't matter.

    Anyone who gets the chance needs to ask Obama why he is not open about where his campaign money comes from. He tries to portray himself as moderate but is actually far left. The lion's share of his money comes from the far left but he tries to hide it. Candidates tend to be loyal to those with the money.

    They should have the debate at UNC-Chapel Hill. By the way Robert, it's termed commander-in-chief, and yes, I would want either of the two to be commander-in-chief.

    I THINK EVERYONE NEEDS TO SEE THAT THIS COUNTRY IS GOING THE OPPOSITE WAY OF THE DIRECTION IT WAS FOUNDED ON.. I WONDER.. WHAT HAPPENED, DO YOU REALLY WANT ANY OF THESE PEOPLE TO BE COMMANDER AND CHIEF?

    Obama you must show for the debate, or loose votes. Surely you are not afraid of a female? But then no matter what each of you say will not matter once you claim the seat.
