Next debate format....Town Hall forum...

So far, all I am hearing is that John McCain is the "Master of the Town Hall" format discussions. I don't see it, because I have seen him stumble and blather, much the same as last Friday's debate. The man cannot stay on point, and we know he cannot look his opponent in the face either.

As to the Friday debate, Steve Schmidt, a McCain aide said on a Sunday program with George Stephanopoulas:

"When Sen. McCain came back to Washington, there had been no deal
reached. What Sen. McCain was able to do was to help bring all the parties
to the table, including the House Republicans, he came back and he listened and
he helped put together the framework of getting everybody to the table which was
essential in getting the package [together]."

And McCain has said:
"Whether I helped or hurt, I'll be glad to accept the judgement of history, but I'm never going to not get engaged when the taxpayers and middle-class of America are in danger of losing everything literally that they have worked all their lives for."

I won't (ha) address the fact he ended the sentence with a preposition for now! But having watched many different news channels, the consensus I heard was - McCain did nothing in the progression of negotiations. Sen. Chris Dodd and Sen. Chuck Schumer, said he caused more problems, by bringing the paparazzi to Capital Hill for his photo-op. If anything, McCain's presence was passive at best and according to some it was a detrimental role.

Apparently, the negotiations were not foremost in his thoughts, as he and his wife, Sen. Joe Lieberman and his wife Hadassah, were dining at the opulent Cafe Moye in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington late Saturday evening.

NO - he was not part of the negotiations - he was NOT valiantly battling the forces of the status quo to get something done for Main Street.

Yes, we need TEAMWORK from the Democratic party to take back our country!!!

Later guys....TTFN. *** How about Bruce Springsteen for half-time at Super Bowl XLIII?? Cool!

I want to see him lose his temper - don't you just KNOW it's gonna happen sooner or later?

I want the Dems to start acting like the wonderful middle-class-working-Amercian-populists they are and to quit being Republicans-lite.
