"Dear fellow candidates, I propose that given the first forum and the SPC luncheon, I sincerely feel the voters would be best served if the 2nd forum in San Diego on May 6th be a round table, open discussion among peers.
I believe it would generate the most dynamic narrative and provide clear distinctions between the candidates.
It would also mirror a more real-life situation that is relevant to the office, dealing with peers at a conference table.
I hope my fellow candidates will consider and agree to this or a similar modification to the otherwise fairly boring and limiting format seen in forum 1 and the SPC luncheon. I think we would all agree that my exclusion from the luncheon provide nearly all of the "tv excitement" for viewers vs the straight (constricting) "format".
Best regards, David Curtis"
