McCain suspends campaign, wants to postpone debate.

Now I've heard it all.

Believe me, I am concerned about the economy, and think that our politicians should be, too.
I want solutions--both short-term and long-term--just as much as anyone.

But holy hell, this election is important. Really important.

I understand McCain's reasons for calling for the postponement, but I still don't think it's smart. I can understand cutting down on the traveling and spending more time in Washington, but the debate? We need this debate. We need all of the debates.

I think it's pretty obvious that McCain "suspending" his campaign is just another campaign tactic. He's not really suspending anything at all. Just trying to make himself look more concerned about the economy than Obama, and apparently trying to weasel his way out of actually having to discuss the issues in a debate.

Yes, the economic crisis is a big deal. Yes, something needs to be done about it. But we are talking about an election that will determine the fate of our country for the NEXT FOUR YEARS (at the very least). This is a big deal, too.

So suck it up, McCain. You can do your job as senator by dealing with the economy, and go to the debate. Figure it out. If you're as prepared to lead this country as you say you are, you should be able to multitask.

Ugh. I really hope they debate.

It is like the blind leading the blind. McCain and Palin...He wants to stop it because he has nothing to say. It is kinda like when Palin was being interviewed by Katie Couric and could not anwser te question. She looked like a deer caught in head lights.They are just stalling. God help us all if he gets in office.. you see the fine job that G.W. has done. Go Obama!!!!
