“…the star of the night was Karibjanian, who handled her duties with firmness and aplomb, asking the tough questions and, almost miraculously, preventing stump speeches and platitudes. Here's a vote for Karibjanian in 2012 - in the role of presidential debate moderator.” – Liz Halloran, NPR “It’s all politics”
