    No agreement has been reached. Only an agreement on "principals". That being said I would place money that the agreement is wrapped by tomorrow morning and the debate goes on as scheduled. By the way you notice how quickly the bailout is now being worked out since McCain's announcement?

    You want something to really worry about? Dems and Bush work out deal. Obama votes for it. McCain votes against it.

    McCain is playing Obama, Reid and Pelosi like a Stradivarius.

    You seriously believe McCain is afraid of debating foreign policy and national security with Obama?

    No and it wouldn't surprise me that McCain knew that his actions would increase viewership by millions.

    He's pretty much got no choice now. If you'd watched the polls, the majority of Americans wanted the debates to happen regardless of McCain's grandstanding. He knows he'll look like a coward, or a tired old man, if he doesn't attend.

    Perhaps this explains why Gallup has it a tie and Battleground has McCain+1.

    That's because it was all a part of McCain's strategy.

    He will come back and do the debates...gaining more viewers in light of his halting of the campaign to go deal with the current crisis..

    and if he takes the debates..which will probably happen considering it is in his area of expertise...

    he will probably start gaining a significant lead..
