But when the rubber meets the road:
Democratic candidate Barack Obama on Saturday backed further away from rival John McCain's challenge for a series of Lincoln-Douglas debates, agreeing only to the standard three face-offs in the fall proposed by the Commission on Presidential Debates.Anytime, anywhere...apparently at the time and place of Barack's choosing. There's your change. And judgment. Too bad McCain won't get to banter with him about the relative strength of Iran with or without US involvement in the region.
Blogger Mustang attended an Obama speech and wasn't blown away by his off the cuff eloquence. The same thing is evident in the above video and elsewhere. Along with his slippery grip on his own positions, it's clearly another reason Obama is ducking...why agree to a nationally televised Lincoln-Douglas style town hall and bust the myth?
