Suspended campaign, my ass

In a surprise move, John McCain "suspended" his campaign yesterday in order to return to Wall Street to work on a resolution to the financial crisis. He suggested that Friday's debate be postponed, a suggestion that was promptly rejected by Barack Obama's campaign.
Did he really suspend his campaign?  Two major goals of campaigning are (i) making the nightly news and (ii) looking good on it.

By those measures, McCain's so-called "campaign suspension" is the best piece of campaigning he's done so far.  

Just as long as nobody notices that McCain isn't really that much of an asset when it comes to dealing with financial crises...

Campaigning score: 10/10.
