Campaign 2016: The Ten & The Seven

Since Fox News has a show called “The Five” I think it’s perfectly OK to call the Republican Fox News/Facebook debate Thursday night “The Ten” and the debate for those candidates not fortunate enough to make the big show can be called, “The Seven.”

One big difference is “The Five” show on Fox News normally has several females participating, but “The Ten” won’t have any females and the “The Seven” will only have one, Carly Fiorina.

According to Fox News, the roster of 10 candidates was determined based on an average of the five most recent national polls.

Are you excited or what? Since Facebook is sponsoring the debate, maybe they should have the candidates attempt to post comments or a photo on their own Facebook page to see if they are at least a little tech savvy…

Here are “The Ten” who made the big show:
