High School Teacher Creates Petition Asking for Jon Stewart to Moderate Presidential Debate
Stewart ended his run on The Daily Show earlier this month
The people have spoken – and they want Jon Stewart.
Mariel Waters, a high school social studies teacher in New Jersey, started the petition on Aug. 6 – the same day Stewart wrapped The Daily Show.

In her petition, Waters said that Stewart “is more than qualified to tackle the moderating job,” adding that “many in the U.S. believe [he] shares their worldview and values.”
“Choosing Jon Stewart would be a popular choice among voters,” she added.
Waters also referenced a 2012 petition set up by high school students asking for a female moderator for the debates that received more than “180,000 signatures and won!”
She is hoping to get 300,000 signatures for her petition.
