SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A presidential debate moderated by Jon Stewart?

A change.org petition asking the former host of the Daily Show to moderate a 2016 debate has garnered over 100,000 signatures. 

The woman who launched the petition says Stewart's many awards and interactions with political heads of state are reasons to have Stewart as a moderator. 

The Commission of Presidential Debates and a representative for Jon Stewart did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
