  • Obama refuses town hall debates

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Presidential rivals Barack Obama and John McCain have failed to agree on joint town hall appearances.

    Obama campaign manager David Plouffe said in a statement Friday that he offered to meet McCain in five joint appearances between now and the Nov. 4 election. But only one of those was a town hall meeting.

    McCain wanted them to appear together in 10 town hall meetings that would be unscripted with questions from voters in the audience.
    Obama preferred one town hall, plus three traditional debates and an in-depth debate on foreign policy.

        For more than 20 years I have endeavored-indeed, I have struggled-along with a majority of this Court, to develop procedural & substantive rules that would lend more than the mere appearance of fairness to the death penalty endeavor.

        I feel morally and intellectually obligated simply to concede that the death penalty experiment has failed.

        The path the Court has chosen lessens us all. I dissent.

          Asked then if he would talk to his players about the situation, he said, “They know me, and that’s where the trust comes in.
