Clinton challenges Obama to new debate

She wants to hold it in Lincoln-Douglas-style
April 26, 2008 12:00:00 AM PDT
Barack Obama's campaign says it's mulling over rival Hillary Rodham Clinton's request for an unmoderated, nearly free-for-all, Lincoln-Douglas-style debate. During a stop in Indiana, the New York senator says she wants it to be just the two of them "going for 90 minutes, asking and answering questions." She says she and Obama can "set whatever rules seem fair."

Clinton has been pushing for more debates, as Indiana and North Carolina's primaries creep closer. She says she's suggesting the head-to-head debate because of Obama's complaints over the questions from the last debate.

Obama, who was also energizing crowds in Indiana, has charged that the debate focused too much on political trivia and too little on real issues.
