It's billed as "The Hottest Ticket in Political History:" A debate between Bill Clinton and George W. Bush at Radio City Music Hall. The event will happen in February as part of MSG Entertainment's third annual "Minds That Move The World" speakers series.

The former presidents will debate topics "ranging from the economy, to foreign policy, to the current administration." From the press release:
The series will be formatted to allow for President Clinton and President Bush to each present their thoughts on a wide range of important current events and national issues through a moderated question and answer period during which the moderator can elicit information and insights into particularly pertinent topics of the day.
It hasn't been announced who the moderator will be.

The ongoing series has hosted some prominent political names, but it's safe to say Clinton vs. Bush will be the biggest. Past events have pitted Ann Coulter against Bill Maher and Karl Rove against James Carville.

The public can suggest questions and debate topics at the MSG web site.

Tickets go on sale Sunday and range from $60 to $1,250.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
