As the 2012 presidential election approaches convention season, some have been wondering who will moderate the upcoming presidential debates and if the Commission on Presidential Debates will appoint a woman for the job.
Though PBS' Gwen Ifill has moderated two recent vice presidential debates (one in 2004 and another in 2008), a woman has not moderated a presidential debate since former ABC News anchor Carole Simpson in 1992. Last week, Simpson talked to The Huffington Post about her strong desire for the Commission on Presidential Debates to select a female moderator. Simpson's call, which she repeated in an op-ed on Thursday, was spurred by three New Jersey high school students who started a petition earlier this year.
