    Shut up and debate 

    President Bush is a one smart cookie. Although the Commission on
    Presidential Debates
    has scheduled three meetings between President George Bush and Sen. John Kerry
    between Sept. 30 and Oct. 13, the Bush campaign, with a phalanx of negotiators, has decided two debates will
    be sufficient.

    Smart political move. An incumbent who believes he is ahead in the presidential race should limit his
    possibilites of damage. If Bush could, he wouldn't debate Kerry at all. He would let us decide on the basis of 527-group ads.

    Is this OK with you?
