Democrats Should Stage Their Own Debates; Debbie Wasserman-Schultz Will Cave

While Democrats bristle under the yoke of DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz ("DWS"), Republican insanity consumes all the political oxygen.

Bernie Sanders, Martin O'Malley et al. look weak and childish whining about the absence of debates among the candidates, awaiting mommy's "permission."

Instead, they should contact the media -- who would eat up the chance to televise debates -- and ask CNN, MSNBC, etc., to stage debates.

Although Hillary has not pushed for more debates, she says she favors them. We know the others do.

If Sanders, O'Malley, Webb, Chafee and Lessig all show up, what is Hillary going to do? Not attend?

And, if she does not, what is DWS going to do -- exclude everyone else from future debates?

The situation is ridiculous. And, frankly, it is difficult to envision any of these people as president if they cannot seize this minor initiative and roll over DWS.
