McCain is in a very bad position. The democrats have said they will wait for him to state his view on the proposal in public before they vote. He can't win. If he stands for the proposal, he will be accused of more voting with Bush and with 2/3 of republicans being against this proposal, that is a real loser. If he votes against and the market crashes, he will be accused of not reacting and letting the economy fail. This is why McCain wanted to suspend campaigning and flee to the Hill. This isn't about saving the economy, it's about saving his run for office. This is also why he asked Bush to call this meeting between Bush, Obama and McCain. This way he doesn't loose any political position with the proposal the come to together. I am very surprised Obama agreed to this meeting except I think if he didn't go folks would say he isn't interested in fixing the problem. Seeing the post about him not suspending his campaign lets me know I was right. I will say this for McCain, he is a shrewd politician but I think they need to address the people in the debate on Friday. The people want to hear from their future leader and not the usual jabs, we want the other candidate to be able to respond to accusations.
