SAY WHAT?:

McCain, Obama may skip bailout vote (CARRIE BUDOFF BROWN & AMIE PARNES, 9/28/08, Politico)

Though McCain took the unusual step last week of threatening to skip the first presidential debate to focus on the crisis, he may not make it back to Capitol Hill to weigh in on the legislation.

“It’s impossible to know until the vote has been announced,” McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds said Sunday.


Is Mr. Bounds smoking crack? The only even mildly acceptable answer is: "John McCain felt this bill was so important to America's economy that he suspended his campaign in order to work for its passage. Of course he'll be there. On the other hand, there's no reason for Senator Obama to show up just to support Mr. McCain's work."
