If McCain were a true leader he would not be snubbing $5M dollars it took for Oxford to prepare for this debate. He is rubbing his nose at them and the rest of the country. As my Aunt says, I'm sure McCain can spare a couple of days...there are enough smart people in Washington who are handling the economy issue without him.

Sen McCain is a true leader. Sen Obama is a professional 'CANDIDATE'.
Sen McCain is ready to lead from day 1 whereas Sen Obama needs on the job training which is why he wants to stay back in Florida to 'PREPARE' for debates.
Here are just highlights from my list of reasons why I am not voting for Sen Obama...

We dont want ANY of these people getting anywhere near Washington DC, our Constitution, or our Bill of Rights.
These are all close associates of Sen Obama.
Sen Obama owes many people many favors...what are they expecting as repayment?

If McCain were a true leader, he would be in Oxford at the debate. I'm sure he can spare a day away from Washington, after all he hasn't been back to Washington in a long while and doesn't know enough about what's going on in the economy to make a major contribution. There are plenty of smart people in Washington who are already working hard on the economy issues. They really don't need a person who has not been involved to suddenly parachute in as if he were saving us...he's not. McCain needs to be in Oxford...where they have spent over $5M getting everthing ready. He will disappoint a lot of people by not showing up....and probably lose votes to boot. I hate to say this, but his suspending the debate is very manipulative and suspicious, especially to my republican-voting relatives who have called him "ignorant" for making this decision.
