I’ve been mocking and highly critical of the McCain – Palin ticket. But I want to be serious and non-partisan for a moment.
John McCain has said that he is suspending his campaign. John Edwards, Mitt Romney and Hillary Clinton all suspended their campaigns when they exited the presidential race. That is what I understand ‘suspending a campaign’ to mean.
Why can’t John McCain and Barack Obama take a leadership role and work on a non-partisan solution to this economic crisis AND continue with the debate?
As Randi Rhodes suggested, why can’t the vice presidential nominees Sarah Palin and Joe Biden step in and debate Friday on national security and foreign policy? As Rhodes said, that is what vice presidents are supposed to do – step in for a president when he / she becomes incapacitated. This would be a phenomenal test and let us know if these 2 candidates are ‘ready from day 1.’
Is this McCain taking a step back to analyze his last week – which clearly wasn’t his best week?
So my question for today is: What happens to the McCain – Palin ticket when John McCain suspends his campaign?
