According to the New York Times, John McCain has not been spending that much time preparing for the debates. So, call for a time-out! Brilliant!
The debate on Friday was to focus on Mr. McCain’s perceived strength, foreign policy. Mr. McCain had not planned to devote large blocks of time to debate practice as did Mr. Obama, who was holing up with a tight circle of advisers at a hotel in Clearwater, Fla., on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to prepare. Mr. McCain had a preparatory session on Wednesday afternoon at the Morgan Library in Manhattan, but advisers said it had been interrupted by his decision, announced immediately afterward, to suspend his campaign.Preparatory session Wednesday? Uh huh.
From the comments, thanks MFranti! Some of us do our homework.
i really liked obama's response
"Presidents are going to have to deal with more than one thing at a time. It's not necessary for us to think that we can only do one thing and suspend everything else.... We've both got big planes. We've painted our slogans on the sides of them. They can get us from Washington, D.C. to Mississippi pretty quickly."
