The CW this morning seems to anticipate fireworks (any one see today’s cover of the New York Daily News?) in the last presidential debate tonight: another Hail Mary pass from John McCain, though in exactly what form is anybody’s guess. As Maureen Dowd noted on GMA: McCain needs a big rabbit out of a small hat.
The Obama campaign is stoking those expectation with a memo out this morning entitled, “John McCain’s plan to “whip” “That One’s” “you-know-what.”” (See after the jump for full memo.) Certainly, game changing final debates have happened before. But Reagan and Carter hadn’t been through the 40+ debates we’ve had this cycle. Both Obama and McCain have had a lot of practice as they’ve proven in the last two rounds.
