Debate Anyway!

If John McCain doesn’t show up to the debate tomorrow, Barack Obama will need someone to spar with.  He can’t do it alone!  I think it would be good for the country if he debated a few of the third party candidates: Baldwin, Barr, McKinney, and Nader.  I don’t know if it would be good or bad for him personally (and so I don’t know if he would agree to it) but it would be an interesting debate.

I think it would be good for Obama and he should agree to it.  I would wager each and every one of them would take it upon themselves to mention that John McCain was unable to fulfill his obligations as a presidential candidate.  Also, if the conventional wisdom holds, they’ll all come off as crazies leaving Obama standing as the only reasonable one.

In any case, it won’t happen.  The reason for this is that the Commission on Presidential Debates is a bi-partisan organization, when it should really be a non-partisan organization.  Bi-partisanship sounds great until you realize that the two main parties agree the vast majority of the time and both are committed to royally screwing up the country we live in.
