McCain flubs his advantage

John McCain just announced he’s going to be in Mississippi for tonight’s televised debate. Big mistake.

McCain’s unexpected announcement that he’d suspended his presidential campaign was a bold stroke, the kind of move that tends to impress Americans. It wasn’t likely to win over Obama supporter, but swing voters out here in the heartland appreciated a politician who appeared willing to set aside silly political posturing to get some important work done.

His decision to participate in the debate tonight without a bailout deal in place makes it appear that his trip to Washington was nothing more than a political stunt.
