This is OT, but interesting if you care about the integrity of the presidential debates and their role in the democratic process. (I had no idea about the history of this, and the attached video was eye-opening).

The only reason I'm posting it here is because I was surprised to learn that the Howard Buffett Foundation is one of only 7 sponsors of the Commission of Presidential Debates, and Howard is on the Board of Directors as well.

I'd appreciate hearing any additional insight.... especially if something in the video is inaccurate. I personally don't love seeing a Buffett connection here, but the high-level political influence seems to be a growing theme... and maybe is just the way business is done now-a-days.
