In a transparent attempt to both avoid having to debate Barack Obama on friday and to boost his plummeting poll numbers, the McCain camp has contrived the purely political tactic of pretending to “suspend” his campaign and run away from friday’s debate.
This is not about “putting aside politics.” This IS politics. This is a POLITICAL move. Obama should come out to the microphone and cluck like a chicken. That should be his response. He can’t keep campaigning, of course, but he should clearly call this for the passive-aggressive political stunt that it is.
