With Bob Dole and Bill Clinton heading for Hartford Oct. 6 to face off in the first presidential debate of the campaign, it's hard to avoid wondering what Mark Twain would have made of it. I'm a newspaper reporter for The Herald Press in Central Connecticut, writing a story on this very subject. Since members of this forum are the experts, not me, I'm keenly interested in knowing what you think Twain would have said - or did say, about politicians of his day. Please keep in mind that I plan on using what you say for a news story unless someone mentions specifically that they do not wish to be quoted in the press. For those who are interested, this is your chance to put yourself in the master's shoes or to help a typically befuddled reporter do a better than normal job on a fun story. I appreciate your willingness to help and look forward to hearing what you've got to say. Thanks in advance, Steve Collins/The Herald Press PS - Once the story is published, no later than Oct. 6, I'll post the text of it.
