Should Elections be publicly funded?

Here's a debate from last Friday's scrimmage between The King's College, Manhattan and St. John's University, Queens.  The motion is This House would publicly fund all election campaigns.

This is a great event and I hope we can do it at least once a month, if not more. The next one appears to be scheduled the weekend after the Cornell tournament, unless I'm out of town that weekend. I'd better check on that sometime today . . .

Still figuring out the camera. This video is not in HD but was shot in HD - Google video does not yet support HD, and vimeo's support even with subscription is only 1 GB files. This debate is around 2.5GB of data. I'm reducing it in various ways to preserve the HD quality and allow it to be posted on vimeo. Once it is, I'll replace this lower quality Google video link.
