Thank you for holding a debate! I don't care all that much for Bob Goodlatte but I have heard so little about the people running against him that I didn't feel like I could make a choice. This is going to help me and my husband alot.

Bob Goodlatte got elected promising to support term limits. He went so far as to promise he would only serve a certain length of time. He has broken both of these promises to the voters.
Where do each of the dem candidates stand on the issue of term limits, and do they have anything to say about a politician keeping his or her promises?

This is a great idea. Sam did a live blogging session on Cobalt6 this morning. Check it out. The complete text is posted on BlueRage. The discussion this morning was a good starter for the debate next week.
