Just one more question, Senator

In his weekly column, self-described "Republitarian" Larry Elder has ten questions he would love to ask Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama at a debate. Here is an example of what he would ask Obama:
Sen. Obama, the church you attend, according to its website, pursues an Afro-centric agenda. Your church rejects, as part of their "Black Value System," "middleclassness" as "classic methodology" of white "captors" to "control … subjugated" black "captives." Your pastor, Jeremiah Wright, recently called the Nation of Islam's Minister Louis Farrakhan – a man many consider anti-Semitic – a person of "integrity and honesty." What would happen to a Republican candidate who attended a Caucasian-centric church and who praised David Duke as a man of "integrity and honesty"?
Here is an example of what he would ask the Shrew:
Sen. Clinton, you want universal health care coverage for all Americans – every man, woman and child. When, as first lady, you tried to do this, 560 economists wrote President Clinton and said, "Price controls produce shortages, black markets and reduced quality." One economist who helped gather the signatures explained, "Price controls don't control the true costs of goods. People pay in other ways." Are those 560 economists wrong?

Good Day to You, Sir
