Debate Awaits McCain’s Move

Sep 25, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Although John McCain announced he wants to postpone Friday’s first presidential debate with Barack Obama, the Commission on Presidential Debates says that the plans have not changed and the debate will go on as scheduled, TelevisionWeek reports. The CDP made the confirmation to news organizations on Wednesday. Meanwhile, David Letterman blasted McCain, who said he was skipping an appearance on “Late Show” to rush to Washington to work on the economic crisis, but took time to be interviewed by “CBS Evening News” anchor Katie Couric, the Los Angeles Times says.

  1. Sorry, Barack. Johnnie isn’t feeling well enough to come out and play, except for friendly talk show hosts who promise to gently lob the softest of balls.
    How would the Commission on Presidential Debates respond to a McCain no-show? They can’t exclude him from subsequent debates, although it’s beginning to look like McCain would benefit from staying away from the stages that his organization doesn’t control. He isn’t ready for either the debates or the office. It would be a sad turn of events if any individual could ascend to the presidency from a string of friendly (Katie Couric and similar) interviews highly scripted by the candidate’s PR machine.
    I’d like to hear your point of view at:
