Both the Obama and Romney campaigns are concerned about questions moderator Candy Crowley might ask at the second presidential debate of the 2012 election season. Time’s Mark Halperin snagged a copy of the agreement the campaigns signed, which limits Crowley’s role, but also states that the Commission on Presidential Debates may only “use its best efforts to ensure that the moderators implement the terms of this agreement.” Here’s some questioning Crowley has doled out to guests on her CNN show:
