Sen. John McCain came up with a terrific idea Monday when he was handed an invitation to meet with our editorial board as part of our endorsement process.
"Why don't you invite Senator (Barack) Obama to join me?" McCain suggested.
McCain noted that he has been frustrated in his attempts to have "just the two of us stand there and answer questions" in a town-hall format.
"Unfortunately, he (Obama) has refused to do so," McCain told our colleagues Debra J. Saunders and Carla Marinucci at the start of an interview at San Francisco's Fairmont Hotel.

What do you say, Senator Obama?
He'll say no.
