McCain Suspends Campaign to Help With Bailout

I'm not sure this is a smart move for McCain:
John McCain will suspend his presidential campaign Thursday and has asked to postpone his debate Friday with Barack Obama so the two senators can return to Washington to help negotiate a Wall Street bailout, an approach that Obama promptly rejected.

I think it'll be seen more as a gimmick for McCain than a leadership move. But now that he's on this track, he should go to Washington, do what he has to do, then fly back to Mississippi and do the debate. If McCain does poorly, he can blame his work on the financial crisis and Obama's lack of participation. If McCain does well, then he further proves he's the superior candidate.
