Obama Avoids Fort Hood Debate

We'd like to know what incredibly important event Barack Obama has scheduled on August 11 that prevents him from participating in a debate at Texas' Fort Hood. 

The townhall event, sponsored by an array of military support groups, hopes to offer the 6,000-strong audience (predominantly veterans and military families) an opportunity to directly question their next commander-in-chief.  John McCain is ready and willing, but so far the Obama just can't find an opening. 

We wonder what scares him most -- a face-to-face matchup with McCain, potential heckles, or simply not being in front of his customary mass gathering of zombies.  Whatever the explanation, Obama looks weak in front an audience that needs to respect him as their commander. Not a good start.
