Debate Aborted

Apparently McCain may not show up for Friday's debate against Obama, as reported by Walter Shapiro over at Salon.
But whatever McCain's underlying motivations, both campaigns are now locked in a bizarre game of chicken. If McCain actually boycotts the Oxford debate, Obama may score a public-relations coup while his Republican rival looks weak and evasive. Or the Democratic nominee may appear too political while McCain puts on his mantle as statesman.
Seems like more of a gamble for McCain than for Obama.
