Tin Foil Hat and Bubble Boy

I did a google search for news on Bill Clinton and this headline came up:
Former president Clinton: voting across racial divide not enough
Bangkok Post, Thailand - 7 hours ago
Washington (dpa) - In the first extensive interview since his wife lost the bruising presidential primary elections, former US president Bill Clinton called ...
However, when I clicked the link, I got this: Error: can not find the story! I tried going directly to the Bangkok Post and got the same results.

I was, however, able to access this story.
WASHINGTON - Democratic candidate Barack Obama on Saturday backed away from rival John McCain's challenge for a series of joint appearances, agreeing only to the standard three debates in the fall.

In May, when a McCain adviser proposed a series of pre-convention appearances at town hall meetings, Obama said, "I think that's a great idea." In summer stumping on the campaign trail, McCain has often noted that Obama had not followed through and joined him in any events.

Obama's reversal on town hall debates is part of a play-it-safe strategy he's adopted since claiming the nomination and grabbing a lead in national polls. Advisers to the Illinois senator, speaking on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss strategy, say Obama is reluctant to take chances or give McCain a high-profile stage now that Obama's the front-runner.
Good grief, even lame ass George Bush debated. Can they keep Obama in a bubble until after the GE? Or maybe ship him off to Europe until after the election?
