Presidential Debate

Well, well, well, the plot thickens. Senator John McCain is suspending his campaign to help Congress decide on whether to approve a $700 billion bailout plan for the financial markets. This places Ole' Miss in a very precarious position. Given that my university, Belmont is the second stop on the Presidential debate trail, today's development has potentially far reaching ramifications. In many ways, it is really inconceivable that Sen. McCain would postpone the debate. With so many resources committed in MS as well as the economic impact of not having the debate, you would think he would attend. It's ironic that his decision could negatively impact a local economy.

A side note, who is going to bailout the millions of Americans who have lost or who will lose their homes regardless of the bailout? These are the stories that need to be told.
