There are no time-outs in Presidential politics, Senator

McCain Seeks to Delay First Debate Amid Financial Crisis – NYTimes.com

McCain wants to “put politics aside”. What John McCain calls “politics”, the rest of us call “democracy”. We have had Presidential campaigns during wars, including the Civil War and World War II. We have had Presidential campaigns during financial crises and the Great Depression. You can’t just stop because you’re losing, it doesn’t work that way. And if you can’t manage the minimal multitasking of showing up for votes and getting briefed by your staff while traveling, maybe you need to re-evaluate your candidacy, because Presidents — even the current one, what’shisname — have to do this sort of thing all the time.

  1. McCain is officially in panic mode.

  2. I think it makes McCain look bad but all of his rabid nutjob followers will think just the opposite. I don’t listen to AM talk radio but I can imagine Limbaugh and Hannity talking about how this makes McCain look “Presidential” right now.

  3. I call it an election.
