What can McBain actually do that would benefit the existing
situation, except go get a Cafe latte for ol' Numb Nuts.
Across the country, McCain campaign offices are up and running, accepting volunteers, conducting phone banking, literature dropping and other GOTV activities. This held true on a local, state, and even regional level. The Huffington Post called up 15 McCain-Palin and McCain Victory Committee headquarters in various battleground states. Not one said that it was temporarily halting operations because of the supposed "suspension" in the campaign. Several, in fact, enthusiastically declared the continuation of their work. Others hadn't even heard that the candidate for whom they were devoting their time had officially stopped campaigning.
He has done both, as he said he would. McCain Campaign Suspension
McCain canceled campaign events and announced plans to take his advertising off the air

I might be in the serious minority here... but I think that the "bailout" is the wrong thing to do. The subprime mortgage fiasco and runaway financial speculation cannot be fixed by a simple injection of cash into the economy; or even by nationalizing the entire market. All this will do is delay the inevitable. Tough times are ahead for the U.S.; and likely for the entire world.
WASHINGTON - Republican John McCain agreed to attend the first presidential debate Friday night even though Congress doesn't have a bailout deal, reversing an earlier decision to delay the forum until Washington had addressed the financial crisis.
