Run The Debates Whether Bush Shows Or Not

The Talent Show > American Prospect

Excellent idea from the Prospect. Since Bush is dragging his feet on the issue, run the debates anyway. What's Bush going to do - not show up? Leave Kerry next to an empty podium answering questions for a prime-time audience? Hell, no. Of course, this is the president who's held twelve press conferences during his entire term so far. Maybe Rove knows that a empty podium would be better than President Bush bumbling out answers to questions he hasn't had a chance to rehearse.
