Bush-Clinton Debate Nixed Over Hype

George W. Bush and Bill Clinton have canceled their debate—which was scheduled for February of next year at Radio City Music Hall—just a day after the event was announced. Why? The promoter “overhyped” the event. Perhaps it was their billing as “The Hottest Ticket in Political History,” or the declaration that the debate would be "uncensored, unedited, and unpredictable" that cheesed off the former presidents. A Clinton spokesman had said they’d planned “just a moderated conversation... no fireworks.”
