As boxing and professional wrestling announcer Michael Buffer says: "Let's get ready to rumble." That's how these presidential political debates on television should begin.

These performances are not being watched for information about the candidates, they're being watched simply for entertainment. They suspiciously look like reality TV.

It's hard to believe that after weeks, months, even years of campaigning, that the American public will watch a few hours of debates between two political people and based upon rehearsed rhetoric, make a decision as important as this.

The real question is: Who do you trust your daughter's future to?
