McCain Suspends Campaign to Help With Bailout

Senator John McCain today announced that he will suspend his presidential campaign on Thursday to return to Capitol Hill, where he plans to participate in the financial crisis bailout negotiations. The senator also asked the Presidential Debate Commission to postpone the debate scheduled for this Friday.

From Senator Obama's campaign,

“At 8:30 this morning, Senator Obama called Senator McCain to ask him if he would join in issuing a joint statement outlining their shared principles and conditions for the Treasury proposal and urging Congress and the White House to act in a bipartisan manner to pass such a proposal.”

  1. Sounds like McCain and Palin may need a doctor's note. They need more time to study.

    Since when is McCain so important for economic discussions anyway?
