Why McCain might have wanted to postpone the debate.

The plot thickens.

According to the McCain camp, they want to address the economic situation first.

If they're successful in postponing, the McCain campaign has substituting in the time/place of the VP debate on October 2nd with the McCain/Obama debate.

What happens to the VP debate, then?

Well... the McCain campaign said it would be postponed to a time to be announced later where this first debate was to take place, but they did not provide a date.

This is just getting weird.

McCain camp to propose postponing VP debate

(CNN) McCain supporter Sen. Lindsey Graham tells CNN the McCain campaign is proposing to the Presidential Debate Commission and the Obama camp that if there's no bailout deal by Friday, the first presidential debate should take the place of the VP debate, currently scheduled for next Thursday, October 2 in St. Louis.

In this scenario, the vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin would be rescheduled for a date yet to be determined, and take place in Oxford, Mississippi, currently slated to be the site of the first presidential faceoff this Friday.

Graham says the McCain camp is well aware of the position of the Obama campaign and the debate commission that the debate should go on as planned but both he and another senior McCain adviser insist the Republican nominee will not go to the debate Friday if there's no deal on the bailout.

They could, you know, sub in the VP debate on Friday. I'm sure a Vice Presidential candidate is ready to fill in for the Presidential candidate if need be, right?

McCain is trying to put his "America First" thing way out front, but it's gonna blow up in his face. Stupid move IMO.

I'm going to liken this campaign season to a football game. All McCain needed to do was play Hermball and keep it close till the end. He did that for the first half(primary's and conventions) he needed to just be conservative and keep it close untill the 4th quarter(the debates). Instead, he comes out in the middle of the 3rd and starts throwing up hail mary's. He got picked off, I think the polls are going to show a big swing to Obama this week. Sure, he might get some garbage time points during the debates, but it's going to be to little at the end.

I don't recall a more weak campaign move than what John McCain is doing right now. After being in DC for a few decades, he decides he wants to finally do something in the midst of his own presidential campaign. How can this even be defended? Imagine if Reagan would've pleaded not to debate Carter in 1980 because of the Iran hostages or if Bob Dole would have stayed in the Senate and said, "Bob Dole's busy, you go on without me Bill."

If you want to be a Senator, be a Senator. If you want to be President, you run for it even when you're losing. If you want to do something about the economy, you should've done it when you had decades to work on it.

Oh Reagan was definitely postponing something during the 1980 debates in relation to Iran...

I find it pretty amusing that the guy the Republicans point to as one of their great presidents is a guy who appeared to have Alzheimer's for a good portion of his presidency.

Well, there's that. What I was referring to is speculation (not 100% fact, but a pretty strong assertion) that GHW Bush went to Paris in 1980 to negotiate with the Iranians and get them to delay releasing the hostages until after the election in order to hurt the Carter campaign.

Pretty much the original "October Surprise"
