Or did he?

April 2008 - Katie Couric just can’t get a break.

The CBS News anchor was looking forward to moderating a Democratic presidential candidate debate in North Carolina on Sunday, an event network executives hoped would spotlight something other than a recent spate of stories suggesting Couric may leave her post in the coming year.

But without a commitment from Sen. Barack Obama that he would participate, the North Carolina Democratic Party canceled the tentatively scheduled forum today because of “time constraints and logistical issues associated with such a large, national event,” according to a statement on the party’s website.

You noticed it was the North Carolina Democratic Party that canceled the forum, right? Are you trying to say that Obama, as only a candidate, controlled the NCDP?

It was made very clear by the Obama campaign that they would not participate in a forum with Katie Couric.

LOL- I am really enjoying watching the GOP blame Obama for Trump's ditching the debate.

I am hoping that they have a big Trump cutout behind the podium tonight.

When Obama ran for state senator he had his opponents disqualified through legal procedures from debating him and disqualified from the race.

Not the only Obama/Hillary debate cancelled in 2007...


Nevada Democratic Party officials said on Friday they were canceling a presidential debate co-sponsored by Fox News, following a joke chairman Roger Ailes made about Democratic candidate Barack Obama.

In a letter sent to Fox, Nevada State Democratic Party Chairman Tom Collins and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Ailes "went too far" with comments made the night before.
