Love him or hate him John McCain flies by his instincts.   McCain has suspended this campaign, and asked that Friday’s debate be postponed, James Taranto, Wall Street Journal:

McCain said Wednesday he is directing his staff to work with Democrat Barack Obama’s campaign and the presidential debate commission to delay Friday’s debate because of the economic crisis.

In a statement, McCain said he will stop campaigning after addressing former President Clinton’s Global Initiative session on Thursday and return to Washington to focus on the nation’s financial problems.

McCain said he wants President Bush to convene a leadership meeting in Washington that would include him and Obama

Taranto adds with respect to BO:

Early reports are that Obama wants the Friday debate to go on

McCain has taken the bull, or this case a bear, by the horns.   If McCain is instrumental in forging a market stablizing agreement all while BO preps in Florida, color the election over.

Oh by the way, BO said he would return to Washington if he could be helpful and if he was asked.  The fact that BO is staying in Florida tells you what Dirty Harry Reid thinks about BO alleged leadership.   Now, B.J. Clinton wasn’t much of a leader, but he smart enough to get in front of the parade.   Alas BO doesn’t even know enough about leadership to fake it.
