Warren hopes to host Obama-Romney forum
The purpose of the forum is "to promote social civility so that people with major disagreements [can] talk without beating each other up," Warren said.
The forum would last two hours, FoxNews.com reported him as saying, and he is looking at hosting it the week of Aug. 20.
In 2008, Warren hosted Obama and then-presumptive GOP nominee John McCain in an event dubbed "the Saddleback Civil Forum on the Presidency." The candidates were interviewed separately by Warren, who asked identical questions to each. McCain, who was interviewed last, was placed in a room without a monitor and not allowed to know the questions in advance.
