If everyone remembers the summer campaign Obama refused to debate McCain in any of the ten proposed town hall debates. The reason why Obama refused because he comes across as being awkward and aloof in town hall settings. He can't relate to working, hard working, white Americans in the same way McCain or Hillary can. McCain has already outlined his energy plan though his town hall meetings while Obama was too busy belittling small town Americans who cling to guns, religion, and the constitution. When the issue of energy, national security, or foreign policy is raised during the town hall debate Obama won't have any good response, and McCain will win. Also expect that Obama's polling lead will evaporate in the next few weeks.
