Welcome, everyone. To the official debate section
of the charter review. Unfortunately, the captain Of the university debate team
had a scheduling conflict. Yeah. We had to bring someone else
in to fill in for this event. Ladies and gentlemen, Please welcome the co-host
of cnn’scrossfire,Famed political consultant,
the raging cajun, Mr. James carville. [applause]Thank you.
Don’t clap.Thank you, dean pritchard. It’s an honor and pleasure
to be here, sir. Topic number one. What is your position
on the role of government In supporting innovation
in the field of biotechnology? Dean, I’m glad you
asked that question… I’d like to jump in
and take that one, jimmy, If you don’t mind. [audience murmuring ]
have at it, hoss. Why doesn’t he wait
for an easy one? Recent research has shown
the empirical evidence For globalization of corporate
innovation is very limited. And as a corollary, the market
for technologies is shrinking. As a world leader, it is
important for america to provide Systematic research grants
for our scientists. I believe there will
always be a need for us To have a well-articulated
innovation policy With emphasis on
human resource development. Thank you.
[groaning] [applause] Where’d that come from? What happened?
I blacked out. It was awesome. That was interesting.
Thank you very much. And your rebuttal,
mr. Carville? Uh… We have no response. That was perfect. [cheering and applause] That’s the way you do it!
That’s the way you debate.
