The first presidential debate of the US election campaign was suddenly back on track on Friday night as aides to Senator John McCain said he would head to Mississippi after all. The Arizona senator had ditched his schedule in mid-week, headed for Washington and called for the televised debate to be deferred until Congress reached a deal on the Bush administration’s financial bail-out plan. EDITOR’S CHOICE In depth: US campaign 2008 - Sep-16 Editorial comment: Politics as usual - Sep-25 Chrystia Freeland: Greed releases class war - Sep-24 Wrangling holds up US rescue - Sep-26 Full coverage: Global financial crisis - Sep-16 Palin cautious at UN gathering - Sep-24 Although negotiations continued on the bail-out, Mr McCain decided at the last minute to make time for the first face-to-face duel with Barack Obama. With the task of explaining Mr McCain’s apparent about-turn, the Republican candidate’s campaign said he would head directly back to Washington after the debate to continue working on the economic crisis. A statement said he was optimistic “that there has been significant progress toward a bipartisan agreement now that there is a framework for all parties to be represented in negotiations”. Mr Obama, the Democratic candidate, had insisted that allowing voters to know how each would run the country was too important to delay their first debate. “Keep in mind, either myself or John McCain are going to be in charge of this mess in four months,” he said during a television interview. Ahead of last night’s encounter at the University of Mississippi’s Oxford campus, both campaigns engaged in the usual pre-debate tactic of playing down expectations for their candidates. Obama officials said that, given his decades in the Senate, Mr McCain had “more experience debating than anyone who has ever run for president”. In reality, both candidates are considered competent but not outstanding debaters. Mr Obama is the better orator of the pair but, during the Democratic primaries, he often struggled to condense his sweeping rhetoric into the snappier sound bites required of the debate format. Mr McCain, in contrast, is a famously poor public speaker but does better in more spontaneous settings such as debates and town hall-style meetings. For many in Washington, suspense over last night’s debate was secondary to puzzling over Mr McCain’s role in negotiations over the proposed bail-out plan. As the hours ticked away, the odds had been heavily in favour of him turning up, rather than risk allowing his Democratic rival two hours of unchallenged airtime. The mere possibility that he might have stayed away ensured that Mr McCain was once again the centre of attention, though his decision to go ahead could yet be interpreted by voters as another about-turn by a candidate already under fire for showing uncertainty in the face of the mounting financial crisis.

Harry Reid, the Democratic Senate majority leader, referring to the deadlock over the bail-out, said yesterday: “The insertion of presidential politics has not been helpful.” He said Mr McCain had promised to reveal his stand on the issue. “But all he has done is stand in front of the cameras,” Mr Reid added. Mr McCain’s strategy this week, geared to underlining his claim to be a decisive leader in a time of national crisis, risks backfiring if voters accept the Democratic view that he was a spoiler in the bail-out negotiations.
