This will be a town hall style format for tonight\’s debate between Senators Barack Obama and John McCain. The format favors McCain at least that\’s what the pundits and poo bahs say but Obama has done hundreds of these town hall Q&A\’s all over the country during the campaign so I think he is on good footing. I\’d like to see Obama relaxed tonight but on his toes and react quickly to what may be the kitchen sink thrown in by John McCain which is watching his poll numbers collapse under the current economic crisis.
