Carter suggested that the debate directly address the ACTUAL and REAL impact that any ultimate office holder might wield.
"The current Lt Governor has been in office nearly 8 years and cannot point to one tie-breaking vote, suggested piece of legislation, completed piece of legislation, cooperative effort, or any effective change his office has effectuated;
Carter said he would like to invite "someone like the guy from 97.1 FM St Louis talk radio" to moderate a 2-4 hour debate at a place that was uncomfortably humid and lacking in modern ammenities.
"I think we could get permission to hold the debate 1800s-style at Missouri's first state capitol building in St Charles Missouri. I've been there with my son's boyscout troop and it really takes you back. I'd like to see the 'bold and the beautiful' sweat out a debate there with no A/C. Our predecessors did it, let's see if there are any REAL politicians left in 2012 Missouri," insisted Carter.
Carter says he got the idea during a bench trial last Friday in a very hot and humid St Louis County Circuit Court room.
"Any one that doesn't think this is a good idea; isn't looking for good ideas, AND the more the merrier; I really want to see a packed, uncomfortable indoor Douglas-Lincoln type affair," added Carter.
He suggested that all active candidates should attend -- Carter, Baker, Kinder, Lampe, Lager, Kratke, Montee, Davis and Plattner.
