First debate will have economic focus — and the campaigns knew that last week

Further evidence that this is all just a political stunt by McCain:

How could Jim Lehrer, a newsman, not ask about the economy?

Well, he will.

A senior Obama adviser says that the CPD has told both campaigns that there will be questions about the economic crisis during Friday’s debate.

They were told this last week…

Last week. McCain knew last week that the first debate would give the candidates a chance to discuss the economic situation on national t.v. with a huge audience. He doesn’t want that. He prefers the drama.

McCain’s erratic behavior gets more disturbing by the hour.
