ABC News panel on presidential debates

In last night's Overnight News Digest: Science Saturday (2012 Nobel Prizes edition) on Daily Kos, I included this press release in the tip jar.

University of Virginia: U.Va. Miller Center, ABC ‘This Week’ Team To Air Discussion of Presidential Debates October 10, 2012
A special edition of ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” produced with the University of Virginia’s Miller Center, will air this Sunday and focus on the question, “Do Presidential Debates Change Elections?”

Panelists are scheduled to include:
  • Newt Gingrich, 2012 Republican presidential candidate
  • Chris Dodd, 2008 Democratic presidential candidate
  • Martha Raddatz, moderator of Thursday’s vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan
  • Richard Norton Smith, presidential historian
  • Donna Brazile, campaign manager for Al Gore’s 2000 campaign
  • George Will, Pulitzer Prize-winning commentator
Broadcast before a live studio audience at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., the program will be moderated by ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jake Tapper.
That program has now been broadcast. Follow over the jump for the segments of This Week that composed that special roundtable.

As many rotten tomatoes as I've thrown at Newt Gingrich on this blog, I think he's on target here. After all, even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
