2008 McCain Wants Friday Debate Postponed

Breaking… and unbelievable.
The argument is, apparently, that the candidates need to focus on the economic crisis.
But what is needed from Obama and McCain regarding the economic crisis, other than what they are already doing? (Which is making speeches, making their positions clear, and making themselves available for Senate votes if need be.)
Hard to know how this will play, but Obama has an opportunity here to say something like: “No way. If you want to be Commander in Chief, you need to be able to juggle foreign policy and economic policy at the same time. I’m ready to juggle both, and I’m ready to debate on Friday evening. I won’t take my eye off the economic crisis, and I’ll do everything I can to move the appropriate bills forward. But the American people deserve a debate on all of the issues affecting them, and they’ve been looking forward this debate. I have been too. This election is too important to postpone a discussion of the issues, and I hope John McCain changes his mind.”
