McCain suspends his campaign, and asks to postpone Friday's debate, to address the financial crisis.
Both candidates have been marginal players; McCain, though, seems to have the potential to make himself a major one, and his move is a mark, most of all, that he doesn't like the way this campaign is going.
But in terms of the timing of this move: The only thing that's changed in the last 48 hours is the public polling."
If McCain can't do two things at once, I don't see how that's Obama's problem. This is as cynical a political move as it gets. Obama's too polite to say HELL NO. So it's wait and see.
