Following their first (of five) “Your Money, Your Vote” debates among the economic advisers to Sens. John McCain and Barack Obama, CNBC laid down the gauntlet. According to a press release:
“…anchor Joe Kernen extended an open invitation to the 2008 Presidential candidates to appear on CNBC Any Day, Any Time to discuss the economy.”
Now, we’re sure similar invitations have been extended by FBN, and CNN, and probably MSNBC and maybe even MTV and BET. Perhaps RFD-TV. Maybe even Nick Jr. and Noggin. So the offer has been extended. Let’s just see if the candidates have the n*ts to accept CNBC’s invitation.
