I you are a front runner in an election and actually want to serve the country, you might want to attend a debate. Once there, you might want to substantively discuss issues arguing vigorously for your point of view. The issues might include terrorism, military involvement, environment, distribution of wealth, cost of education, and income distribution among many others. You would treat your opponents with respect realizing that while having differences, they too have the best interests of the country at heart. Once the debate was over, you would thank your opponents and say farewell.
