As a signatory to the Demand Question Time petition, I urge you all to sign up and spread the message. It is being heard by the White House and Congress. Our politics would be healthier if politicians got to ask, and answer, questions with less mediation, less theatrics, less stagecraft and less sloganeering. Sign the petition and ask them to do it.

UPDATE: Note which party is willing to have a more candid, public, unmediated debate. And which is not.
Democrats were thrilled with President Barack Obama's performance at last week's question-and-answer session with the House GOP, but it's the Republicans — not the White House — who are embracing a call to make question time a regular part of American political life.
