McCain likes the forthcoming Town Meeting format because, I’m told, it lends itself to one of his fortes: bullshitting, rather than answering truthfully. Obama also likes to stretch things a bit, as well.
During the VP debate, Palin flat out refused to answer some queries, and Gwen Ifill let her get away with it. Will Brokaw put up with this kind of crap? Or will he demand (as best he can) that the candidates properly address each and every question?
(I don’t know how to get rid of that dumb tagline below, which mysteriously popped up in another post.)
