In his Rewrite segment this Friday evening, Lawrence O'Donnell talked to his viewers about his suggestion for how to modify the rules for presidential debates, and I have to say, I couldn't agree with him more. As he rightfully stated, we're not electing a "memorizer in chief, we're electing a commander in chief.

As O'Donnell reminded us, there's not a politician out there who makes a decision without the help of their staff, or written notes and other material readily available to them at their request, so why should the debates be any different? Why not let candidates have access to whatever notes, props, and a staffer on hand to go get them whatever material they need if they request it?
