NEW YORK (CNN) – John McCain and Sarah Palin’s meeting with Bono was canceled Wednesday due to scheduling reasons, according to the campaign.
Instead, McCain and Palin will chat with Bono by phone this afternoon about the ONE Campaign, the U2 front man’s initiative to raise awareness of AIDS and global poverty.
Unlike McCain and Palin’s other meetings with dignitaries in New York this week, most of which had been open to reporters and photographers, the Bono meeting was listed as closed to the press, at the rock star’s request.
I loved all the pictures from the babs event of obamas.
he is always open to the press.
you guys are a sad lot. I am sorry for you.
McCain / Palin 08
McPain is trying to worm out of Friday's debate, but he'll even think about taking the time to have a meeting with Bono. Great JUDGMENT you tool.
Since when is allowing 16 seconds with Pail considered "open" to the press. Come on we know next to nothing about Palin except she promised transparency and keeps avoiding the media. What a farce!
Let's see I once sat on a bus and when aske by a French tourist "if a building he was pointing at was the US Supremem Court Building" and I said "yes." I guess that gives me foreign relations experience and expertise. Then a year ago, I attended a Cary Simon concert and she shook my hand after the concert as she was leaving. She even let my wife take a picture of her and me. I guess that gives me Hollywood Star experience and expertise. I see that Palin is now a truly an expert on the world situation, diplomacy and soon Hollywood just like me.
WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT. I thought that the rethuglicans thought very little of celebrities. Now they want to meet with Bono?!?!?!
That a boy Bono...
It's clear they are trying to use anyone who might might her look good. ( Hey anyone for a photo? )
Is anyone suprised. Bono is really about helping people and is fully aware of foreign policy in different countries. He doesn't want to be used by the McCain campiagn to give Palin some sort of fake credentials especially if it's just for a Photo Op. He actually does have better things to do.
Things that make you go hmmmm. Do you think that he could actually favor the other ticket?
So much hate! No wonder you people choose not to believe in Religion, you'd surely burn in Hell! Regardless of who wins the election the purpose of the meeting is to ease poverty and control the spread of AIDS and all you jerks can do is make a childish attempt at humor.
IT DOESN'T TAKE A "QUICK STUDY" 6 YEARS, ATTEND 5 COLLEGES TO GET A BA IN JOURNALISM AS PALIN DID. SOUNDS LIKE A DUMMY TO ME AND MCCAIN AND PALIN WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE SHE;S A "QUICK STUDY".
I'm disappointed that he's meeting with them. Those two don't care about any of his initiatives. An absolute waste of time that they will try to spin for the next month.
I always wondered what kind of idiots can stand to watch CNN. After reading these comments, now I know. With Biden talking about FDR going on TV in 1929 and Obama never knowing which of the "57 states" he's in, who are the clowns?
