Is John McCain a Coward?
John McCain has apparently suspended his presidential campaign, in an effort to either a) bring more focus to the impending collapse of the world’s economy which he helped cause problem or b) get out of Friday’s debate which could not possibly come at a worst time for him.
Note the following comment from the cited report:
The move put Obama in a bind. Rejecting the idea would allow McCain alone to appear above politics, but agreeing to suspend campaigning and the debate could make Obama look like he’s following McCain’s lead. Advisers also say that McCain still wants to participate in all three presidential debates, but that the schedule is up in the air.
Fine. But there is a very simple answer that the Obama campaign can respond with here:
“The person we elect as president should be able to handle two important things, or more, at the same time. I’ll be at the debate Friday evening, and I’ll meet with the president as well. See you in Mississippi, John. Or not.”
