Beyond The Horserace

(CBS/The Early Show)
"People want to know about a candidate's positions on issues that affect their lives, not just fund-raising and horserace politics."

--CNN Anchor and "Early Show" special contributor Lou Dobbs. Dobbs, as Variety notes, "is offering declared candidates for president two unfiltered and uninterrupted minutes to make their case on a single topic…such as health care, illegal immigration, public education, the war in Iraq, border security and trade policy." Just declaring your candidacy won't get you airtime, however: Only those candidates with at least 1% support in the polls qualify.
