(CNN) - Barack Obama is 'inclined" to go ahead with the debate Friday night, campaign sources tell CNN.
McCain said Wednesday the debate should be postponed if the economic bailout has not passed congress by that time.
Obama is expected to make a statement around 4:30 p.m. ET.
I'm "inclined" to think this makes Obama look like he is more interested in furthering his own campaign instead actually working to help solve a very real, very pressing problem. I don't have a lot of faith in someone who puts themselves first over the other 300 million of us.
DEBATE, This is the race to be the next president we need to know who will be in charge of the economy for the next 4 years!
Maverick? When it comes to Senator McCain just drop the "m-a-v-e" and put a "t" in front of the "rick" ! MCCAIN is full of tricks and that is why all of his tricks backfire! Isn't it just too ironic that Senator Obama spoke to him about 2:30pm and shortly after 3:00pm, McCain is giving a statement like it was his idea to "come" together and give a joint statement? Senator McCain is only interested in one agenda and that agenda is not the American people, that agenda is himself! Yes, I acknowledge that he was a POW, but what else can I can for him that would make one think that he is "presidential"?
go get him O!
don't let the old weasel wiggle out of it with his Country First crap. God, how transparent!
old mcnasty is about the last person I want in washington dealing with economic crises.
Please, please, please debate! Don't fall for the McCain trap! He is just trying to take the heat off of himself.
If Obama does this thing the moment the heat is off he will bash as him as naive and inexperienced. He may do it anyway, but better froma position of strength than from following that jerk to DC.
thank you !!! The debate should be on and i an inclined to agree with him
This is just a political move by McCain.. Granted a good move..
Is John McCain scared of debating Barack Obama. I thought he said the economy was fundamentally fine.
As Moltz said on twitter:
Yeah, sure, we can postpone the debate. Hey, John, let's just postpone the election if now's not a good time. When's good for you?
Debate!!!! McCain is just trying to stop Obama's momentum. Let McCain be the one who declines.
ABC's poll question on Honestly/Trust: Obama 48%; McCain 35%...
We want the debate too! McCain telling us that he can't fly to Washington then fly out to a debate against Obama? I'm sure he would have time if it were for a lobbyist.
I'm fairly certain Sen. Obama can handle both the bailout and a debate. Why can't Sen. McCain? Certainly the presidency won't be any less hectic...
