Education is the orphan issue of this presidential campaign, because the subject is too complex and too volatile to be decently handled in the kind of debates that Gov.

The truth is that Candy Crowley’s meddling at the Hofstra presidential debate was as inappropriate as was her presence itself. It was much as if Angelo Dundee had been the referee for the first Ali/Frazier fight and jumped on Smokin’ Joe’s back because Ali couldn’t hack it that night.
