"I'll debate John McCain any time, any place." That's what Barack Obama said shortly before he declined John McCain's challenge to appear at ten Town Hall meetings for debates without a moderator or panel. The sad truth is Barack Obama isn't so articulate without a teleprompter. Both his books are pretty good. I wonder who wrote them. The lack of debate itself could become an issue. Voters are not satisfied by the canned affairs that we have been subjected to in the last several Presidential elections. The sad fact is Barack Obama is not very good off the cuff and doesn't have the cojones to face John McCain in a non-media rigged debate.
