Ross Perot was a candidate the last time a woman anchored a presidential debate. This was in 1992, when ABC’s Carole Simpson moderated the first-ever town hall-style debate. Unfortunately, she wasn’t given much to do. "I was told in my earpiece by a producer, 'Go interview the lady in the green dress on the left, and now the man in the red sweater,” Simpson recently told the Huffington Post. I had no control over the questions that were asked, or who asked, or in what order. I was like a traffic cop."
