Obama has more preconditions for a town hall with John McCain than for a meeting with Mahmoud Ahmadinjead

Michael Goldfarb: "Anywhere, Anytime"? yeah, no kidding....
Obama has more preconditions for a town hall with John McCain than for a meeting with Mahmoud Ahmadinjead, the head of a terrorist state. And the way in which the campaign went about this--dropping the news on a Friday afternoon, having surrogates lined up to spin it as if we had declined their offer, and making it sound as though they'd met us half way with five debates, when in fact they are only offering one town hall--shows Obama isn't all that serious about change.

The McCain campaign is willing to go anywhere Obama likes, and anytime--and when we say it, we mean it. We'll have the debate in front of Obama's house in Chicago if he wants--as long as the voters can engage the candidates and ask their questions. Anywhere, anytime.
