Obama cancels remaining debates

As he suggested last week he might, Obama has decided to cancel the upcoming North Carolina debate.  Were he to be brutalized again, it might affect his standing with the superdelegates.  I expect this is the last time for a while that we’ll see him anywhere he can’t control the agenda.

Running out the clock makes good sense for Obama, if he can, but there is a downside.  This pulls the rug out from underneath his spin that the last debate was a travesty for not focusing on the important issues.  Apparently Obama doesn’t think there’s much more to be debated on those issues after all.
