9. counterweights ...........
Yes, they will stack the audience with sycophants as much as they can.
But - there will be plenty of Obama supporters there, too.

The McCain camp is in for a big surprise if they don't realize the
brobdingagian difference between a town hall of McCain's liking that IS
stacked with only his supporters and one that has supporters from both camps.

If a questioner gets out of line, there won't be any shortage of people
that will let the questioner know, in no uncertain terms, that the time to sit
down and shut up has just passed. Nothing like a few fist fights and a few
arrests to liven up the 'debate'. Is this a great country or what?

If I am wrong, and Obama doesn't fight fire with fire and McCain gets
declared the winner both before and after the 'debate', then tomorrow I
will go to my bank, cash out my IRA and bring the money home and put it
in my mattress.
