Sunday Spin 2: One other debate note
Various political geeks and some news media colleagues who were watching the debate on line through a live feed from the SFCC theater knew something that neither I nor live audience knew: In the minutes before the event started, the online camera feed was showing me backstage, where the microphone was live.
Some assumed – correctly – that I wasn’t paying attention to the live mic, and were waiting to see if I’d utter some inappropriate expletive or knock over a water bottle as the podiums were moved into place and wires taped down.
Only by the grace of God, I did not.
