What do you think of McCain’s gestureto suspend his campaign?
Both presidential candidates do have day jobs they should not neglect. They are both Senators. It is surely appropriate that they leave the campaign trail to come back to Washington to thrash out such an important piece of legislation as the bailout of our financial system.
A commentator on FOX said that now John McCain can present himself as riding in on a white horse, delivering the Republican votes, and so saving the economy.
Another pundit said that McCain should oppose the bill and thus present Barack Obama and George Bush as being on the same side. Of course, that’s not going to happen. On this major economic issue, the two candidates offer the voters no choice between them. They agree. In fact, they have issued a joint statement asking all Americans to come together on this.
What do you think? Were you convinced by the President’s speech? Are you coming together?
