EYES ON OXFORD
The University of Mississippi is gearing up to host the first presidential debate of 2008.
Foreign policy and national security issues will be the focus of the much-anticipated showdown between Republican Sen. John McCain and Democrat Sen. Barack Obama, after which a good many of the country’s undecided voters are expected to lineup behind one of the two major-party candidates.
Meanwhile, D.C.-based reporters who won’t be on the Oxford, Miss., campus for the Sept. 26 debate are being invited into the National Press Club to watch the political action unfold.
Says press club organizers: “Our new jumbo TV screens will show every frown, eye-roll and smirk — not that we expect any, of course!”
