There are rumors that the format for the February 25 healthcare summit will be the same question-and-answer format of the House Issues Conference in Baltimore.
O certainly is partial to that format because it allows him to monopolize the microphone as he did in Baltimore.
And, the Republicans would be foolish to accept a question-and-answer format. Rather, they should insist the format allow for formal presentations from both sides.
Refusal on the part of the President to adopt formal presentations would indicate O is not serious about an exchange of ideas over healthcare legislation.
