During the GE, there will be 3 presidential debates and one VP debate.  They will be scripted, they will have some self-serving hack like Tim Meet-the-Press as moderator, and the whole thing will turn on some crappy little mistake that someone will make.

Barack Obama should challenge McCain to a little game of 5-card stud, or Texas hold-em.  Except Barack should call it the “Illinois prairie game”, a variant of texas hold-em where it’s 2 down, 4 up, and the last card down (best 5 card hand, nothing wild).  

After all, the real world of diplomacy is like poker.  You have some control, a lot rides on what gets dealt, and half the people are drunk.
