i think maybe too much emphasis is being placed on the moderator, IMO, the onus should be on the participants, to be succint, on topic and avoiding rabbit trails of oneupmanship and ego to make the point. In the end, the most honest answer will rise to the top.
...that said, these VP debates seem to take on a a 'carrying a sign. Mostly say hooray for our side' foundation of perspective.
