As I said yesterday, I don’t believe McCain was grandstanding when he decided to stop campaigning for a couple of days in order to help resolve America’s current financial problem. To me, it was a “country first” thing, with McCain putting the country ahead of his personal ambition.
It turns out that his country does indeed need him. Paulson begged McCain to help out, because he’s the only truly bipartisan guy out there. No one begged Obama for this kind of help.
John McCain – Leadership
Barack Obama – Partisanship
John McCain – Country First
Barack Obama – Obama First
John McCain – Serves the people of the US
Barack Obama – His favorite debating opponent is an empty chair
