14. I'd be delighted to...

...I believe that campaigns should be as efficient as possible. Spending time preparing for, traveling to, and then traveling from, debates that - in aggregate -appeal largely to political activists who are already committed to one of the candidates is not the best use of a candidate's time this far out. Additionally, endless debates that revisit the same material add nothing to our political discourse. Four debates closer in to the first primaries, and two later in the Primary cycle seems will maximize attention from less engaged voters who will be the bulk of the undecided, and will be perfectly adequate to discern the differences between the five (as opposed to 17) candidates we have to choose from.
