This just in from Sen. John McCain's Arizona ranch, where his top aides are prepping McCain's running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, for Thursday's debate with Sen. Joe Biden.

The Governor's debate prep today is taking place outdoors near a creek on the scenic McCain ranch in Sedona.

Several advisors are participating.
