    He really hammers that fact that Palin cant fill in for McC.

    The more they keep Palin underwraps, the more they make the case that she isnt ready to be pres.

    "At a minimum, voters were treated again to contrasting styles of leadership Wednesday, with McCain willing to act boldly, if impulsively, to inject himself into the middle of delicate negotiations to force a solution, and Obama adopting a cooler approach designed to show calm in the midst of crisis while preferring to give long-distance encouragement to all parties in the talks."

    "But privately, three Republican strategists were sharply critical, viewing McCain's decision as a high-risk move that entails uncertain negotiations in Washington at the possible expense of a debate they believe McCain badly needs to get back on the offensive. One strategist called the move "desperate and nuts," and another said in an e-mail, "I don't get it at all." "

    I think McCain has forgotten he is in the middle of a campaign and he has not been elected. Biden is still out campaigning, Palin I read was recently at the UN but did not speak to the media. I think if McCain has his way there will not be any debates. Now is the time to really tell the American people where they stand on the economy, not go into hiding....or is that strategy?

    he probably "suspended" his campaign because he doesn't want to deal with the hard questions and backlash from what is going on right now and the Republican policy makers ( including him ) part in it all.

    Political commentators are ripping into McCain over this, and I'm reading that Letterman's slams are the equivalent to Walter Cronkite's death-blow to the Vietnam War. I don't think it's that dramatic, but certainly a setback for McCain.

    More significant than ticking-off a talk show host, is the White House throwing a monkey-wrench into the financial bail-out plans at the last minute today, so McCain could appear to get credit for some new scheme that no one's heard of yet. As some in Congress, who almost had the plan finalized, have noted it seems the White House is now focused on a McCain bail-out plan, rather than a financial bail-out plan for the country. This is pathetic.

    Meanwhile, Palin continues to argue that being able to see a remote shore of Russia from Alaska gives her foreign policy experience. I mean, can anyone with half a brain take the Republicans serious at this point? This would be Saturday Night Live material if it wasn't our futures at stake.
