So we'll know by noon, huh?

From NBC's Mark Murray
Frank Fahrenkopf, co-chairman of the Commission on Presidential Debates, tells Newsweek's Tammy Haddad at the Memphis Airport that he will know by noon if the first presidential debate will take place. If McCain does not come by law there will be no debate because it is an "illegal contribution." 

When asked what the absolutely drop dead time is he replied, "the final sweep by 5:00 pm."
