Living his motto “Country First” John McCain heads back to Washington D.C. to help with the economic bailout package and asks Obama to postpone Friday’s debate…..since the only thing Obama can do is campaign he is refusing to move Fridays’ contest. Some say it is just political maneuvering, I think McCain’s act yesterday is a man following through on the promises he made during the course of his life, Country First. As many of you know I was a Mitt fan through much of the primary season but the more we have McCain as our candidate the more I get excited about the prospect of a McCain/Palin administration. In a time were far to many American’s have there hand out for what they can receive and forget to think of the well-being of their country first, it’s good to know that someone with so much at stake it willing to sacrifice their personal gain and being elected to the most powerful position in the world for the sake of bettering their country’s future. Even Bill Clinton,for God's sake, thinks McCain acted in good faith...and that it is only a good political move if Obama agrees, which he hasn't yet agreed to do. I may have been wobbly in my support of McCain in the past but over the last two months MCain has proven himself to be THE candidate that America needs right now to more forward...

Republicans and the White House welcomed McCain's move as a needed appeal for both parties to work together, while Democrats suspected a publicity stunt ahead of Friday's scheduled debate…The Arizona senator announced he would suspend his campaign, pull television advertising, halt fundraising and return to Washington on Thursday to try to help negotiations over a stalled $700 billion bailout plan for Wall Street.
