First presidential debate is scheduled for Friday, 9/26. Interestingly, both Obama and McCain - - a while ago - - succeeded in changing the topic from domestic policy to foreign policy. Obama reportedly wanted to demonstrate his expertise in foreign affairs while McCain reportededly felt foreign affairs played to his advantage. A follower would stick with the script. A leader may break frame, apologize for having done so, acknowledge that the original topic was to have been domestic policy, and come forward with a key response to the financial malaise. Double dare you, Barack. Double dare you, Johnny Mac.
