    McCain will go to debate
    By POLITICO STAFF | 9/26/08 11:27 AM EDT Text Size:

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) ended three days of suspense on Friday morning and announced that he will leave bailout negotiations in Washington and fly to Oxford, Miss., for the opening presidential debate.
    McCain had previously said that he would suspend his campaign until an agreement was reached on the administration's $700 billion mortgage proposal.
    No such agreement has been reached, but Republicans said the standoff was hurting McCain's campaign, and that he would look terrible if he didn't attend the nationally televised, eagerly anticipated debate while Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) was ready to go onstage.


    The difference between Barack Obama and John McCain was apparent during the White House meeting yesterday, where Barack Obama’s priority was political posturing in his opening monologue defending the package as it stands. John McCain listened to all sides so he could help focus the debate on finding a bipartisan resolution that is in the interest of taxpayers and homeowners.

    May John McCain be seen tonight for the empty suit that he has become during this election cycle.
