Republican John McCain says he's going to be at the first presidential debate, even though Congress doesn't have a bailout deal.

With less than 10 hours until the debate was scheduled to start, the McCain campaign announced that the Arizona senator would travel to the University of Mississippi.

The campaign said after the forum he will fly back to Washington to continue working on the financial crisis.

The campaign's statement said McCain is optimistic that there has been progress toward a bipartisan agreement.

    Anonymous, why is it you think it's a 'race election' just because someone questions Sen. Obama's decisions? This is NOT a race election. It's about issues. If I'm against more spending and my taxes being raised and I'm pro-life, my conscience dictates that I can't vote for Sen. Obama. That doesn't make me against him because of his race. Besides, Sen. Obama's mother was white. He is as much a part of the white race as he is the black race, through his father. It's ISSUES, my friend, not race, that will decide this election.

    See this is why our country is slow with progress because of small minds and good-old boys method.I was wondering when this election would turn from the best for our country to a race election.8 years of Bush is the reason for a bailout and we the people can not afford 4 more years of the same plans.I am sadden to read that someone is satisfied with the government plans.Besides, our troops deserve to come home and McCain has opposed to that.So,I am sure Maurice you was not there to hear McCain was against our troops coming home! We the voters was there and their are others that believe Its A Time For Change!!

    I hope they ask Obama how he could preach on no more Bush politics, then alighn himself with Bush on taxpayer bailout. How much money did he and his financial adviser receive from Fannie May? How can he support the Acorn group who are known for voter fraud and embezzlement. Also what about his association with so many radical people and groups. That would be a good start.
