Tonight John McCain and Barack Obama will sit face to face, across a table from each other and, for the last time before the election, they will address questions posed by "battlin'" Bob Schieffer. With the further sinking of the stock market today, it would be surprising if at least half of the debate wasn't centered around the recession we are now officially allowed to admit we are in.

It would be nice for both of them talk about the brain trust they will call in to advise them how to get us out of this one. Bring back the WPA-- anyone, anyone?
