RS - 

(presuming that we continue with the present predominantly live 
candidate speeches) 

Should candidates be told to briefly state their own qualifications 
for consideration by the electorate?  Or simply told that they've 
got 3 minutes, and "go for it?"   If candidates want endorsers to 
also speak, should they be able/encouraged to enter them as candidates 
as well so they get a speaking slot?
