MARTHA MACCALLUM (HOST): You know, opening the door to potentially not having a debate if he thinks that it's within that time frame that's dangerous, Brit?
BRIT HUME (FOX SENIOR POLITICAL ANALYST): Well look, have we been, haven't the medical authorities been telling us all this time that to avoid infection you stay a certain distance apart and you wear masks and then even in certain circumstances you might have a partition that separates you from others and that -- that way you could get on with life.
There's a real need in this country to get on with life. And presidential and vice presidential debates are a part of that, so the idea that if the president is still potentially infected in some way, that you couldn't stage an in-person debate I think flies in the face of all that we've been told about this disease. Now, if we are now to believe that all the precautionary measures that we've talked about, that people who have, that are carrying the virus can transmit it despite distancing and despite masks and other precautionary measures, then we are in a whole new ball game. I don't think we are.
