If it ever came down to a debate I would like to see Daniel Imperato versus Hillary Clinton. I think it would be quite spirited.

A spirited debate is not useful in and of itself. That's the realm of blogs and talk shows, not national debates. Those are better civil, intelligent, objective as per each person's views. 'Spirited' should be avoided when the leadership of a world-leading country is at stake.

Had Daniel Imperato presented himself as more of a genuine candidate, with a clear following, it could make sense, like Ross Perot. However, his influence is provincial and his following is minor. There is little he stands for that can't found in national-level leaders.

I applaud his willingness to be independent, but he hasn't even declared he's a candidate. At this point, as national dialogue goes, he is inconsequential.

Sorry, Dan.
