Thousands want Jon Stewart to moderate presidential debate



Jon Stewart may have said goodbye to the "Daily Show," but his fans are already trying to line him up for more career opportunities.

As of Thursday night, about 115,396 people have signed an online petition for the comedian and former satirical-news host for "The Daily Show" to host one of the three major 2016 presidential debates. The petition website states, "Stewart has played an influential and iconic role in covering U.S. politics and media."

2. I like debates to be moderated by either

 

Apolitical or completely unknown moderators. Debates should have not a single solitary thing to do with the moderator....it should only be about the candidates.

Further this 20 year + era of softergentler debates where the candidates are allowed to vet the questions results in something other than a debate...
