... she's already debated him several times ...

... and, she did quite well.

Since when does the side that's losing get to set the terms?

She made when she needed him to debate her.

Realistically, no one expects her to fulfill any promises. Not her style.

He could say "I'll even give Hillary the home field advantage and debate her at a location on Wall Street."

7. The town hall meetings have been far more constructive anyway.

The audience gets to ask questions and the candidates are able to fully respond.

He absolutely crushed her in the Miami debate. She looked like a low energy Jeb Bush type in comparison.

14. I think the debates in both parties have been a big waste of time.

I like the actual voters in the audience asking questions at the town hall's are much more constructive.

20. I think there is a lot of truth coming out of the Hillary in re: Debates

I think Bernie's directly addressing Madame Secretary on the issue of corporate contributions and Goldman Sachs, and especially the transcripts is downright offensive to Hillary. Some may ask why, what makes Hillary different than any other politician who is running for office. The answer is she views herself as royalty. The years of never having to worry about anything that resembles a working person's life, (except for that time they were flat broke), have bred into her the self image of a royal.

Therefore she is indignant with Bernie, and will not speak to him any longer. So forget about debates Bernie.

Personally, I have never been much of a fan of actual royalty. Faux-royalty is something I find incredibly offensive.
