    McCain Says He'll Suspend Campaign to Deal With Financial Crisis; Calls on Obama to Do Same; Wants Debate Postponed

    John McCain asked the Presidential Debate Commission on Wednesday to postpone Friday’s scheduled debate with Barack Obama so that he can work on the financial crisis bailout plan now on Capitol Hill.

    The Arizona Republican senator said he will suspend his presidential campaign on Thursday to return to Washington to help with bailout negotiations. He urged Obama to do the same.

    Nothing on the Google news pages yet. Did you hear it on TV?

    Carl Cameron announced it on Fox. He said he had been told earlier by the McCain campaign but sworn to secrecy until McCain spoke. He said they will challenge Obama to do the same.

    It's all over Fox.

    A bold move.

    We'll see how prudent it turns out to be soon, I guess.

    FNC is doing a good job putting this out, too.

    Cameron just agreed with me ( :D ) that it is a bold move.

    That is the scary part... looks like no-one knows what to make of the crisis, much less how to fix it.

    Do you think Obama needs to do the same thing?
