McCain and Obama are currently SENATORS...NOT the president, yet. They are being paid to be SENATORS, not campaigners. They have jobs to do and they should both be back in DC, doing their JOBS!

Well, there is a bailout deal it seems like. By the way, what does Sarah Palin - who does not currently hold national office let alone a Congressional seat - have to do with the bailout negotiations? Why can't she participate in the debate?

"Just reported"? This is what he was saying from the beginning yesterday when he proposed postponing the debates. It's not breaking news or anything different than yesterday. Sheesh. Spin, spin, spin.

..."In this scenario, the vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin would be rescheduled for a date yet to be determined".

In other words, maybe we'll just forget about it. They'll think of a good distraction!

This is so transparent. Can you imagine if neither one of them shows up for their debates?

Um, no, if you'd read the article it actually gives a suggested date for the pres and suggests TBA for the VP.

They don't HAVE a job to do in Washington!!!! They aren't on the committee!!!! They have also been elected as candidates for the Presidency. They DO have a job to do there.

Sheesh.

Apparently there is no deal.
It's not about Palin. It's about allowing them to be in Washington and there already being a time that could work for the debate.

How convenient that they would chose the date of the VP debates!

Not what I heard about 30 minutes ago. They said there is still hot debate concerning it and it is NOT as near a conclusion as is being reported.

I never said a thing about them being on the committee...but they will need to vote and neither if them can do that if they are not on the floor to do so!There's no absentee ballot for senators or congressmen...sheesh!
