You Can't Suspend Your Presidency In The Face Of A Crisis
What an incredibly dumb move by John McCain to shut down his campaign amid swirling economic uncertainty in the States. This presidential race is about choosing which man Americans want to tackle the economic crisis - now, more than ever, is when the candidates should be presenting their plans to the people.
The fact is, there's only so much McCain can do as a Senator - he can do a lot more to end the crisis as a President (In theory - I'm not saying he would...). If he wants to leave the campaign trail to focus on this, fine, that makes a certain degree of sense, but to tell your team to stop campaigning, fundraising, and running ads? That won't make a lick of difference and all it does is give Obama a monopoly on the ground and in the air.
I get what McCain was trying to do, but there was no need to do it and it's just bad politics.
