Does it even need to be said?

Real leaders don't forsake their responsibilities unless there's an actual, honest-to-goodness crisis, not an artificial deadline.

Folks, the financial markets are in a tizzy, I'll grant you that, but we're not looking at a meltdown by Friday. What we're looking at is a bad situation that might get steadily worse, especially if we listen to a moron like Bush saying "you have to give me more power or terrible things will happen!"

(Seriously, did you see the proposal? Let the government buy whatever junk debt the Bushies want, without any oversight or control. Translation: Let Bush give away presents to all of his supporters.)

But there's no need to suspend one's campaign, or duck out on a debate, just because there's a bunch of whining and handwringing going on in the financial markets.

If this is how John McCain reacts in a crisis, maybe he should just give up and admit he can't hack it as President. Because Presidents are busy, and have to show they can carry through with their plans, even when Congress might adjourn without passing a particular bill that is of questionable value.
