If I Were An Obama Adviser...
I would strongly advise he take Ahmadinejad up on his challenge to debate the President at the United Nations:
"...Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is calling for a face-to-face debate with his American counterpart Barack Obama at the United Nations.
The offer by Ahmadinejad came at news conference Monday as he steps up his campaign for his re-election in the June 12 presidential vote.
If returned to office, Ahmadinejad says he wants to meet Obama during the U.N. General Assembly in September to debate "world issues and the way toward peace." (source)
This is a total win-win for Obama. The right might hate him and hope he fails, but they(we) hate holocaust denier Mahmoud Ahmadinejad much more. We would have to root for our country's president (Obama) in this match up. It's the only way I can see Obama garnering our good will barring some catastrophic event.
...Hey Rahm, you're welcome for the free advice.
