Whatever It Is, I'll Be Writing About It Live

Just a quick post to let loyal readers know that I'll be "live blogging" whatever ends up happening tomorrow evening -- be it a debate, or a ninety-minute exclusive between Obama and Jim Lehrer, or what-have-you.

Any guess as to what it might be? Will there be a debate? I haven't figured out how to run a poll yet, so feel free to log in with a comment.

My own personal intuition is that McCain is maneuvering into position to pull a "Jim Bunning" -- the Kentucky Senator who, in 2004, said he would debate his Democratic opponent but only via closed-circuit TV and only if he knew all of the questions in advance. McCain could say that he regrets having to stay in Washington but that the situation is so fluid there that he can't leave, but since everyone is waiting on the edge of their seats, he'll offer to participate via satellite uplink. Then, of course, he could have a staffer positioned four feet off-camera, feeding him the answers.

PS: Look for a more conventional post between now and then--topics will include the second installment of the Katie Couric interview with Sarah Palin, and the McCain's un-suspended, suspended campaign.

Have a good night, everybody.
