Definitely. If there is no vote taking place, Obama and McCain should definitely debate to their hearts content!

McCain will come up with another excuse like: it's too hot, too cold, too rainy, too sunny, y'know, anything to buy some time...

That was my point.
If Palin's not the reason, why dont they suggest moving the VP debates up to Friday? Switch with the presidential debate?

McCain: Among the recalcitrant senators who will be influenced by him, how many will he not be able to even quickly meet with today and tonight, or talk to on the phone and make plans for Saturday or Sunday?

If he hadnt spent so much time fooling around in New York - about 24 hours - he'd have had more time before Friday to "work on the economic package."

So he goes to the debate, then comes back Friday night/Sat. am and keeps working.

Why is that difficult? A president MUST be able to do things like this, you know.

With him on the ballot in 46 states now, it's technically possible for him to win the number of electors needed. So yeah, he should be in the debates. All of them that could conceivably win should be.

I no longer disagree with McCain on him not allowing Palin to expand on her interviews & his attempt to try and cancel the veep debate.....If you all saw her w/Katie Couric....You'd agree too.....LOL

I have no intention on voting Barr but he is viable and would probably give Obama a better debate.

I think that's a reasonable solution.

Good frakkin GOD.... when are the libs gonna stop the ranting and hounding and rancor and moaning and bitterness?? It's been going on for seven years and reaching a piercing crescendo now. What's it gonna be like when their Empty Suit gets elected? Oh, yeah... that's right. They're all marching off to Work Camps.

Remember several weeks ago McCain canceled the convention because of a hurricane in the gulf. Can’t have too many things going on at one time with all the pressure. Now he can’t make a debate and the Palin isn’t allowed to answer questions from reports yet. If she can’t step up to the plate now, what can she do if McCain can’t fulfill his term? The nation needs help if the republicans want to hold the office of POTUS again.
