Vice Presidential Debate Moderator a Big Obama Fan

October 1, 2008 · Filed Under Debates, Joe Biden, News ·  

The moderator of Thursday’s vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin has a horse in the race.

Gwen Ifill, of the PBS program, “Washington Week” is scheduled to moderate the debate, and she just so happens to have a book coming out called “The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama,” according to WorldNetDaily.

The book is described on Amazon as follows…

In THE BREAKTHROUGH, veteran journalist Gwen Ifill surveys the American political landscape, shedding new light on the impact of Barack Obama’s stunning presidential campaign and introducing the emerging young African American politicians forging a bold new path to political power.

But, of course, Gwen Ifill is objective. She just happens to be in the Obama Fan Club and her book is coming out on Inauguration Day.

In terms of sales for her book, I’d imagine a victory by Barack Obama would be more beneficial than if John McCain were to win.

I think she should step aside, so we can have a moderator with no stake in the outcome of the election.
