Bring it.

Due to the financial crisis, McCain is suspending his campaign for the week, and calling on Obama to do the same. This includes Friday night's debate.

The Obama campaign needs to release a statement like this right now: "The current financial crisis makes a conversation between the two men vying for the presidency even more necessary -- not less. We look forward to seeing Senator McCain for our scheduled debate on Friday, and in light of recent events we are prepared to spend the entirety of the debate addressing the current financial situation and our plans for the future."

I'm hoping for an exchange like, "Let's clear up a couple of things. First of all, 'unfunded mandate' is two words, not one big one."

Or how about this:

"It's my belief that this is exactly the time when the American people need to hear from the person who in approximately 40 days will be responsible for dealing with this mess," Obama said.

He added, "I think that it is going to be part of the president's job to deal with more than one thing at once."

(That's actually what he said.) this latest shenanigan of political maneuvering prompted my coworkers and I to cite that same WW quote...

Looks like you got your wish! As the talking heads were saying on NPR yesterday afternoon, "There will most likely be a debate in Mississippi on Friday night. The question is, how many candidates will be present?"

I bet Nader would come, if they let him.
