Bipartisan Agreement!

After the ABC debate trainwreck from last April, I have a hard time believing any candidate — particularly Barack Obama — would be stupid enough to accept an invitation for another ABC-controlled debate. And both Obama and McCain have turned down ABC’s invitation for an ABC-controlled ‘townhall meeting’ in Manhattan moderated by Diane Sawyer.

Interestingly, both campaigns negged the idea on the same grounds: that any townhall events they do will have to be open to all press and not sponsored or organized by a single news organization.

Perhaps ABC would be more suited to staging a debate between Hannity and Colmes.
