With or Without You

26Sep08

There’s a debate tonight, John. With or without you. Obama says he’ll be there, and the commission says the forum will be held, with or without you.

Jim Lehrer, the respected PBS journalist tapped to moderate the first
presidential debate, has announced that the event’s designated focus on foreign
policy will not preclude a discussion of the current economic crisis.

I happen to think that McCain has every intention of showing up, now that he’s promoted it into an event that could be the most watched debate in history.

It’s estimated the first Obama-McCain debate could draw 100 million viewers
and set a record, if it happens, Schwartz noted.

McCain has done well promoting his events in the past, and this promotion looks to be another great play.

It’s still not clear whether John McCain will take part in tonight’s scheduled debate with Barack Obama in Mississippi. He had said he wouldn’t take part unless there’s an agreement first on a Wall Street bailout plan. But a leading McCain ally, Senator Lindsey Graham, tells NBC that McCain just wants to be sure that “Congress is working” and that there’s at least an “outline” in place.
