BREAKING NEWS: Obama says debate goes on

Sen. Barack Obama says that the presidential debate Friday will go on despite Sen. John McCain's request to delay it so both candidates can go to Washington and help craft a deal for Congress to consider about Wall Street's troubles.

"It is my belief that this is time the American people need to hear from someone in 40 days who will be responsible for this mess," Obama said.

Obama said he had contacted McCain first this morning so the two could issue a joint statement of principles about the current crisis.

Obama said he and McCain agreed that taxpayers should be treated as investors in the bailiout legislation and receive full reimbursement at a later date. He also said they agreed on direct help to mortgage holders.

Obama said the risk of doing nothing risks catastrophe. He added that he and McCain agreed on issuing a joint statement of agreed principles to send to Congress.

So, do you think McCain can actually do anything in Washington? It's clearly a ploy I think.
