Obama has chickened out.
Not that I would not expect this from the Messiah of All Empty Suits.
Look at this jewel:
"Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is backing away from a challenge by Republican rival John McCain to hold a series of town hall meetings, agreeing to only three debates in the fall. Obama advisers say the Illinois senator doesn't want to take any chances or give his opponent a high-profile platform now that he's ahead in the polls."
So, he's not willing to face his adversary, because he doesn't want to give him the chance of looking better than him. And people still want this coward to be the face of the United States in front of the world.
Chicken, chicken shit.
