McCain Goes to Washington; Obama...?

Sen. John McCain announced today that he is suspending his campaign so that he can go to Washington D.C. and help solve the current financial situation that has enveloped NYC and D.C. He has invited Sen. Obama to do the same, and he has asked that Friday's presidential debate be postponed.

This is a good decision by McCain for a couple of reasons.

  1. He is, after all, drawing a salary to be a U.S. Senator; so in essence, he is going to his job! Therefore, it is the right thing to do.
  2. Politically, it is a shrewd move. Sen. Obama really can't "win" in this scenario.
Senator Obama does not see any necessity to postponing the debate. But if he really wants a debate, I have a suggestion for the McCain campaign:

Send Sarah Palin to debate Obama.
