It’s yesterday morning. The Big O’s peeps call their Republican counterparts to suggest releasing a joint statement on the financial crisis. The Republicans agree. For six hours there’s no contact, and then look! It’s Top Gun on the tube! He’s suspending his campaign and stepping out to help solve the financial crisis.
Thank heavens! Washington needs his vast economic expertise right now.
McCain also says he wants to suspend Friday’s debate. A time out in the middle of a presidential campaign? Technical foul!
Here is how the Big O responded: “It is my belief that this is exactly the time when the American people need to hear from the person who, in approximately 40 days, will be responsible for dealing with this mess. It is going to be part of the president’s job to deal with more than one thing at once.”
