CNN, Univision score Dem debate


Hillary Clinton (D-NY) had signaled her willingness to participate in a number of additional debates, including offering an olive branch to Fox News Channel, which has thus far been boycotted by the Democratic field. However, chief rival Barack Obama (D-IL) said there have been plenty of debates already, that he did not sense a great clamoring for any more, and said maybe he’d do one.

One has been added to the schedule. It will be hosted jointly by CNN and Univision, and is on the calendar for 2/21/08. It will be held at the LBJ Library in Austin, and will occur less than two weeks in advance of a critical primary face-off in Texas where the Hispanic vote is expected to be a major factor in the results.
