” Washburn is back, promising to keep people to time limits but saying, “I’ll try not to be a scrooge about it.” Yesterday, the candidates seemed to bristle at the format, which didn’t produce many fireworks. So far, today doesn’t look much different. The audience is silent, Washburn looks sour, and there hasn’t been any back-and-forth. Gotta love the PBS aesthetics—padded sound, black background, fixed camera angles. It’s like a group Charlie Rose interview.
