Worse: A ploy to cover for Palin

John McCain's campaign now wants to suspend the VP debate?

CNN's Dana Bash reports that McCain officials are "trying to negotiate with the Obama campaign and the presidential debate commission" to change next Thursday's planned vice presidential debate into a McCain-Obama affair. The VP debate would be postponed to another date.

"That is what they are proposing," Bash reported. "[McCain officials] understand very well that both the Obama campaign and the debate commission have no intention of delaying Friday's debate, but...if there is no bailout deal by Friday, McCain has no plan to go to debate."

Let her talk. Why is she being protected? Where are the interviews? Where is the access. McCain, Obama and Biden spent months on the primary trail being scrutized up and down. Heck, Obama went on the O'Reily show.

Why can't she spend the next 40 days proving she is a viable candidate under the same glare, the same scrutiny, the same press everyone else has dealt with?

Maybe they want the VP debate to be closer to election day so the running mates have a greater impact.

A VP should be able to step in during a crises, no?

Explain what exactly?

Why McCain thinks Friday's debate should be postponed?

Why it should be rescheduled for the time allotted for next week's scheduled VP debate?

Because it makes little sense for the VP candidates to have their debate before the presidential candidates meet. Next Thursday is already scheduled for a debate and it is the first such time after McCain presumes the legislation will be ironed out.

I agree, her handlers have her locked down tight, quite the opposite of Biden. Reminds me of Cheney, who is actually invisible.

What makes you think they need an excuse for this? Do you honestly believe McCain fears debating Obama? Did you not watch any of the democrat primary debates? There is nothing there to fear. Obama is incompetent without a teleprompter, that is why he even brings them to rodeo grounds.

I doubt the crisis will be resolved in a week, the McCain campaign will just keep finding excuses to postpone. I predict next they'll feign offense at a supposed insult and take their ball home.

No one is claiming the crises will be resolved. Congress is scheduled to adjourn on Friday. The legislation needs to be passed by then.

My guess is that the House may not adjourn on the 26th.

I'm still undecided at this point. It SEEMS he is again putting the country above his own needs, but I readily admit I may be part of the herd of sheep.

From President Clinton:

Quote:
Former President Bill Clinton defended Sen. John McCain's request to delay the first presidential debate, saying McCain did it in "good faith" and pushed organizers to reserve time for economy talk during the debate if the Friday plans move forward.

Appearing on Good Morning America Thursday, Clinton told ABC News' Chris Cuomo that McCain's push to postpone the debate would only be a good political move if both candidates agreed. McCain announced on Wednesday that he would "suspend" his presidential campaign to come to Washington to help negotiate a financial bailout bill

"We know he didn't do it because he's afraid because Sen. McCain wanted more debates," Clinton said, adding that he was "encouraged" by the joint statement from McCain and Sen. Barack Obama.

"You can put it off a few days the problem is it's hard to reschedule those things," Clinton said, "I presume he did that in good faith since I know he wanted -- I remember he asked for more debates to go all around the country and so I don't think we ought to overly parse that."

maybe McCain himself is not afraid to debate, but he knows that his Barbie will crash and burn as soon as she opens her mouth, because people in charge of programming her are not meeting the deadline.

Have you ever watched Gov Palin debate? McCain has little to fear there as well. Unless she cracks up and can't stop laughing at the stupid things that continuously flow from the mouth of the plagiarist.

i have seen enough of her to know that she is a complete failure.


Q: Specific examples in his 26 years of pushing for more regulation?
A: I'll get back to you on this one.


ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS???

Since you can't vote, I'm sure she can live with that erroneous assessment.

you fail to recognize the fact that there are normal people in America who share my point of view and will not let her and McCain get to the White House.

You fail to recognize that your feelings on this matter are by no means normal or shared by many. Most reasonable people, not blinded by partisan emotions see Gov Palin as a successful woman to be admired and are not threatened by her as you clearly are.
