McCain’s calling of a “time out” in campaigning today and a postponement to Friday’s debate, forces me to propose the following solution:

  • Keep the debate on Friday.
  • Move it to Washington D.C.
  • Change the focus of the debate from foreign policy to the economy.  I want to see what both candidates have to offer, now that they have to think on their feet.

    I just want to point out the McCain timeline:

    1) Get call from Obama about issuing a joint bipartisan statement.

    2) Ignore it and make a unilateral statement about going to Washington… in the name of bipartisanship.

    In response to your suggestion, I think McCain isn’t going to hold a debate in Washington because he doesn’t want to hold a debate at all right now, knowing he’ll lose. 😛

    From the GOP 2008 Platform, “Rebuilding Homeownership” section:

    “We do not support government bailouts of private institutions. Government interference in the markets exacerbates problems in the marketplace and causes the free market to take longer to correct itself.”
