John McCain has asked the presidential debate commission to suspend this Friday’s debate so he can return to Washington to vote on the Mother of All Bailouts.

McCain is also asking President Bush to convene a “leadership” meeting, whatever that means.


Republican John McCain says he’s directing his staff to work with Barack Obama’s campaign and the debate commission to delay Friday’s debate because of the economic crisis.

In a statement, McCain says he will stop campaigning after addressing former President Bill Clinton’s Global Initiative session on Thursday and return to Washington to focus on the nation’s financial problems.

McCain also said he wants President Bush to convene a leadership meeting in Washington. Both he and Obama would attend the session.

And more from FNC.


What say you?

What do you think of McCain’s campaign suspension?
Great chess move. He’s outflanked Obama.
I don’t get it. He should do the debate.
Don’t care. We’re screwed.
