Here comes the straight talk. Sen. John McCain will be speaking at the College of Charleston on Wednesday as part of the school’s Bully Pulpit Series on presidential communication.

Senator McCain is the first presidential candidate to speak in this series, which invites the individual presidential candidates to speak with students and Charleston community members on such topics as the frequency of press conferences, the candidate’s relationship with journalists, and the power of the president to persuade.

Considering this is a speech on the media in front of a crowd of young people, one can be assured that McCain’s comments will include his clever jabs at the media (“And now I’ll take questions. None? Great.”) and teens (“You little jerk. Your drafted.”).

The event will take place at College of Charleston’s Physicians Auditorium on October 3, 2007 from 6:30pm – 7:45pm. A reception will follow the Town Hall event.  A ticket is required for entrance.  Tickets will be available for students at no charge at the information desk on the first floor of the Stern Student Center on the College of Charleston campus.  Tickets cannot be reserved via phone call or e-mail contact.
