Debate? What Debate?

Is Bush about to crawfish on the debates? He hasn’t confirmed to the University of Miami that he’s coming to the one scheduled for September 30 in Coral Gables, and the time is running out.

I can’t believe that Bush would actually back out of the debates. That would hand the Kerry campaign a real gift – BUSH IS TOO CHICKEN TO DEBATE! My guess is that James A. Baker, the negotiator for the Bush campaign, is dragging this out to try to get the best possible deal he can, and by waiting until the last minute he thinks he can get the other side to cave to his terms, like pre-screening all the questions and replacing Jim Lehrer with Mike Savage.
