The Night of the NCAA Finals? Seriously?

The Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders campaigns are negotiating a time for their New York debate, and Hillary wants it tomorrow night, while the NCAA basketball finals are on the air:
The Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders campaigns are still negotiating over the timing of a debate before the New York primary on April 19th, with no resolution in sight.

Mrs. Clinton’s campaign released a statement Saturday saying they had offered the Sanders campaign three possible dates for what would be the ninth debate between the Democratic presidential hopefuls.

All were rejected, Clinton press spokesman Brian Fallon said in a statement.

“The Sanders campaign needs to stop with the games,” Mr. Fallon said.

In a statement issued later, Sanders spokesman Michael Briggs said the dates and locations proposed by the Clinton campaign “don’t make a whole lot of sense.”

“We have proposed other dates which they have rejected,” he added.

“We hope we can reach agreement in the near future,” Mr Briggs continued. “The people of New York and America deserve to see and hear a debate on the important issues facing the state and country.”

In his statement, Mr. Fallon said the Clinton campaign agreed to debate on April 4th, April 14th or April 15th.
The Clinton campaign's 15th suggestion is in the morning.

They really don't want to debate.
