McCain suspends campaign; wants to delay debate

In the second week of a disasterous economic crisis, John McCain just announced he will suspend campaigning and wants to postpone the first presidential debate that is scheduled for 48 hours from now, to come to Washington and work on the bailout.

Last week, McCain said the fundamentals of the economy are strong.

Later, he explained that he was talking about the American workforce. He was all over the map last week, seemingly flailing and lashing out at SEC chairman Chris Cox and wanting to fire the head of the "FEC". (Oops)

What he didn't do was rush to Washington and suspend his campaign. Last night's ABC/WP poll showing he was diving among likely voters may be a factor in his sudden decision today.

If he wants to be POTUS, how does this reflect on McCain's handling the serious issues of the office?

Will the world only hand him one crisis at a time?
