Tonight's Debate

The New York Times solicited questions for the Democratic candidates for tonight's debate. What follows is the question I have submitted, but was apparently rejected:

79.February 16th,2008
6:31 am. I have read that the cost of the war in Iraq has created a debt in excess of twenty thousand dollars for every child in the United States at the moment of birth. My question to the candidates is: How do you propose to deal with the estimated one trillion dollar debt incurred by the United States as a result of the war in Iraq? From that central question flows a multitude of ancillary ones, such as ‘Is it fair to saddle future generations of Americans with the crippling debt of this war?’
