McCains call to put the America and the bailout plan ahead of the scheduled presidential debate is only political maneuvering. Historically, when the economy is doing poorly, the incumbent party loses the election. With the economy in crisis, Obama of course wants to maximize this political windfall while McCain wants to limit his party's hemoraging. If a deal is brockered, McCain can push his bipartisan credentials and ability to weather crisis. The candidates current actions come as absolutely no surprise.
