    "Summing up the Republican National Convention so far: "I understand they don't have much of an agenda to run on. But I think the American people deserve better than to get the same old vitriol and slash-and-burn politics that we've been seeing over the last couple of days. We are going to tell the American people exactly what I and Joe Biden and an Obama administration intend to do to make their lives better. And I hope at some point the Republicans decide to engage in that debate."

    Correct me if I am wrong here but didn't John McCain tell Obama to come debate him at any of the townhalls he wished to come too? Was it not Obama who didnt choose to show up? So now Obama is the good guy in all this after the initial press release of "small town mayor" comment which was instantly repeated on his MSNBC Network?

    correct me if I'm wrong but wouldn't those townhall meeting be stacked with McCain supporters and be just a tad hostile towards Obama?

    Why not meet somewhere neutral?

    Obama isn't going to take the bait and sink into the gutter with them. He has a clear message to get to the American people and by staying on message he tells them that he actually cares about changing politics as usual....

    The McCain Campaign wouldn't dare at this point. They don't want to risk another "lettuce incident."

    After seeing that I can only say one thing, where do I sign Senator McCain?

    Oh and if your wondering, he got booed greatly for those comments.
