As unconventional a debate moderated by Joe Rogan may sound, it actually raises an important campaign conversation, writes Alice Stewart.

Kennedy face off with Vice President Nixon in the nation's first televised presidential debate.

With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that there is currently chatter about a foul-mouthed, comedian and MMA commentator seeking to host a four-hour presidential debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.

According to Rudy Giuliani, former New York City mayor and current Trump campaign rep, by the first debate on September 29, as many as eight million people in 16 states are expected to have begun voting.

As many as 35 million people are expected to have voted by the second presidential debate on October 15.

How can voters make an informed decision without having seen the candidates debate the issues face to face?

"People want to see who can hang in a debate, they don't want to vote for a loser," Kennedy told me on Monday.

Rogan has, in past episodes of his show, been critical of both Trump and Biden and had previously noted his support for then-prospective presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

Vice President Biden's team told me Monday night that he will participate in all debates sanctioned by the Commission on Presidential Debates (the Rogan proposal is not sanctioned).
