McCain-Obama I is On

With no bailout package having been agreed, John McCain has agreed to fly down to Mississippi to debate Barack Obama on foreign policy this evening. Then he will return to Washington to see what he can do about getting a deal done.

It would have been better had there been a deal in place but McCain can say after the debate, "Well, I've got an economy to save. There's work to be done."

Even with the economy on the brink, foreign policy is still an immensely important topic that requires discussion. If not for the catastrophe on Wall Street, the world would be glued to Pakistani troops firing on U.S. and NATO troops on the Afghan-Pakistani border despite President Zardari's pleas to fight terrorism. Although one can underestimate Obama's eloquence on any given subject this debate is right in McCain's wheelhouse.
