Professor Robert George of Princeton will moderate and question the South Carolina GOP candidates forum. He is a man of rare substance and grace, who can get to the heart of the matter with few words. (Read the profile on him in the NY Times Sunday Magazine--damning him with faint praise: "the reigning brain of the Christian right.") Having precepted for him years ago at Princeton, I can attest to his ability to get skeptical students to consider questions they would never have thought about otherwise. If the forum gets boring, I hope Robby pulls out his banjo....
H/t Michael Krauss.
Other candidate forums should consider such non-traditional talent (get the press out of there!): Peter Schramm of Ashbrook, Larry Arnn of Hillsdale, Brian Kennedy of the Claremont Institute--each could perform such a role superbly and enrich political discussion for not only Republicans but for the general public as well.
