Presidential debate team makes 2nd visit to Saint Mary’s

Representatives of the Commission on Presidential Debates made a second visit this week to the campus of Saint Mary’s College, one of a dozen universities nationwide competing for the opportunity to host a 2012 presidential or vice presidential candidate debate.

Three event producer-types with clipboards and pencil scoped out the Moraga university’s grounds and facilities, “opening closets, checking out the attic,” said a college source.

Whether or not a second visit is reason for optimism — the college would love to attract the high-profile event — is unclear.  But it sounds good.

The commission is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that stages debates for presidential and vice presidential candidates.
