McCain wants to postpone the debate? Hmm...

I don't know how effective it's going to be for John McCain to try to postpone the debates in order to "unite for the good of the country to figure a way out of this financial crisis". What's he gonna do, exactly? It sounds like he's trying to look "decisive and presidential", but in the heat of a campaign season, it looks more like a political ploy. Time will tell as to what kind of effect it has on his campaign.

In the meantime, Barack Obama is going to go on with the debates. But with who? Himself? Also, if the debate panel doesn't nail him with hard questions like a debate SHOULD have, all that will do is encourage the ol' "the media's in the tank for Obama" criticisms. If there's any "softball questions", then Obama would lose any sort of edge that he might get for showing up for the debate while McCain did not. It would be better if he struggled with hard questions than "knock it out of the park" with softball questions. The debate needs to play out like it's supposed to.

Know what would be good? If Sarah Palin could take J-Mac's place. Ha! But that's not going to happen.

I think, honestly, if Sarah Palin took the place of McCain in the debates that her brain would liquify.

What a mismatch. Not that Biden is a better matchup for her either.
