Head to Head

The Watcher’s Council, of which I am the member with greatest longevity (I replaced Joe Gandelman of The Moderate Voice about five years ago), has begun a new recurring feature, “Head to Head”, in which Council members debate issues of the day. I think the feature has real potential and is easily the most exciting initiative of the Council in some time.

The first topic, an incendiary one, was “Resolved: that articles of impeachment should be drawn up against President Obama for his intervention in Libya”.

The second, in which I took the affirmative, was “Resolved: that the Obama Administration acted rightly in repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”.

    I’m not sure the topics were personally compelling, but I think it was well done on all sides, particularly in sticking to the proposition and not drifting into other areas.
