McCain Wants Joint Town Hall Meetings with Obama


John McCain has invited Barack Obama to join him in 10 joint town hall meetings with voters. McCain envisions all these meetings being held between June 12th and the Democratic National Convention. He described it as such:

“I don’t think we need any big media-run production, no process question from reporters, no spin rooms. Just two Americans running for office in the greatest nation on earth, responding to the questions of the people whose trust we must earn.”

Personally, I’d love to see the two candidates in such venues. Unlike George W. Bush, McCain is energized by such unscripted interactions. It’ll be interesting to see if Obama is willing to put himself out there as well.
