Presidential Energy Debate Coming To Houston

In Election 2008, Energy, Houston, news, Politics, Television, Texas Politics on September 20, 2007 at 9:25 pm


The top four candidates from each party will be coming to Houston in November for a discussion focusing on energy. The discussion, dubbed the energy summit, will be held at the George R. Brown Convention Center on November 13th. The summit will be open to the public (limited seating) and televised nationally.

Houston hasn’t hosted a presidential debate since 1980. George Bush and Ronald Regan were on the stage then.

As much as I would like to go just for the experience, only some of the 3500 seats will be open to the public. I’m not sure how many seats there will actually be and if people will be carefully pre-selected to fill them. Hopefully our fellow Houstonians won’t embarrass our city by acting like this loon. I’m sure the tazers will be on standby.
