Just when you think he’s a goner or an old guy with no new ideas, he pulls one out of his a**. And a bipartison thing too.

McCain calls for a delay of the debates and some “bipartison leadership” on the economy.

Change. Isn’t that what we all want?

UPDATE: Something like this during this time of the election cycle your mind immediately goes to politics. Was it astute? Now what ‘should’ McCain do now that Obama has said no to the delay? etc, etc.

Think it through another way. I like to think that there are people in Washington DC who are public servants. They choose to do things like write policies, study other policies, debate differing ideas and try to come out on the side of what’s best for the American people.

Sure there are things like ambitions and money involved, but seriously – would you want to be a politician? Like police officers there are those who get into it for power/control but at the same time there are many who get into it because they want to work “for the people”.

So back to where I got off track. I like to think there are people in DC working out our problems so I don’t have to.
McCain just said to me – middle American voting woman – “This is big. The debate can wait until next week. Right now we have to get a solution together tha we can all live with”
Obama just said to me – middle American voting woman – “No way, no way is that guy going to postpone my big debate. I’ve been preparing. And no way am I backing down on this campaign. I’m winning!! If all those other D’s need me to vote on whatever side they come down on, I’ll be there, but otherwise I’ll stick with campaigning.”

Uncorrelated says it well.

Concerning Obama’s statement here:

“I believe that we should continue to have the debate,” Obama said. “It’s my belief that this is exact time when the American people need to hear form the person who in approximately 40 days will be responsibly for dealing with this mess and I think that it is going to be part of the president’s job to deal with more than one thing at once.”

Mick says:

I’ll just point out to this moron that the one thing is my damned future, and the other thing is personal journey of discovery. I’d like this asshole to set aside his personal interest and ACT LIKE A DAMNED PUBLIC SERVANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wanted to reach through the screen and strangle the man. He is so out of touch that he’s literally on another planet. He’s the Democrat’s presidential candidate–his opinion carries weight. He should get his ass to Washington and save the country if he can fit it into his schedule.
