The Rules of Engagement

Wanna see what the debate rules are before you see the debates starting tomorrow night?

They include:

Candidates are expressly forbidden from using risers that will make them look taller.

The TV camera shots will be locked down.

There will be no "cutaway" shots of the other candidate while one candidate is talking. So you won't see "reaction" shots of the other guy rolling his eyes or whatever.

Each candidate will have his own make-up person.

Each candidate may have Secret Service folks and one staff member in the stage wings.

The President and Veep both get to have a physician and military advisor in the wings.
