Speaking for myself only, I've certainly asked a couple of broad, maybe
"vision", questions, but certainly not because I'd merely like to see
them discussed. Rather, it's because I haven't found answers to them in
the candidates' platforms and my vote actually depends on how the
candidates will both answer and approach them.  I suspect others might
be approaching the campaigning period with similar expectations.

In fact, campaigning period has always been an occasion to discuss "big
issues", as you put it, and it would be sad to pass on the occasion.

On the other hand, I don't think anyone here has any specific "quality
of service" expectation. Campaigning period is rather long, and in my
experience its intensity decreases substantially over time. No one is
expecting you people to answer within the hour or the day. Take your
time, and enjoy the discussion!
