    McCain's attempt to score political points by "suspending" his campaign to rush off to DC and save the day, kinda backfired. :rofl:

    Now he looks like a total ass. How's he gonna spin this one?

    2/3 of the Dems voted for the bill. Jesus couldnt get 100% of Dems or Republicans to vote for this bill. The dems knew the number they had and worked with it. If the republicans werent so childish by taking offense to Pelosi's comments then we would have passed the bill. Its the most stupid thing I have seen in a while. We have a bunch of children running our country and that goes for the Dems and the Republicans.

    No egg to remove. McCain suspending his campaign to go deal with an extremely important matter was a huge homerun.

    Obama should have prayed McCain stayed in DC considering how he got smacked around like a prison ho on national TV.

    Umm, what?

    So McCain suspends his campaign, says he won't do the debate until a plan is reached, and heads to washinton!

    Except that...

    ads continue to run.

    Surrogates are still on TV speaking.

    Volunteers are still going out and knocking on peoples doors...

    Ok, so it was only partially suspended. But I'm sure McCain managed to fix the bill when he went to washington, right? Not so much. He put presidential politics into the mix, and sided with House Republicans...the very people who were against the bill.

    And then the bill failed. Well then McCain canceled the debate, as he said he would right? Not so much. He went back on his word and went to the debate, even though there was no plan.

    But somehow you think that was a success? God you are a partisan hack.
