The Whitman-Brown Debate, Revisited Even before Saturday's television debate in Fresno, Meg Whitman and Jerry Brown cancelled a radio debate scheduled for tomorrow that would have included voters' questions in the kind of format that might have forced specific discussion on the deficit, which programs ought to be cut and which might deserve an increase in taxes. So far, it's been a campaign of generalities except for the ongoing dispute about Whitman's former housekeeper, which also became Saturday's focus. In this first debate on Spanish-language TV, the candidates were also questioned about the federal DREAM ACT by a woman about to graduate with honors from Fresno State, who would not be able to work without a path to citizenship. We hear excerpts and analysis of the debate.
