I'm beginning to doubt that we need a president

The latest fun in Presidential news:

John McCain, noble statesmen that he is, has "suspended his campaign" in light of the financial crisis. He claims that he will not appear in this week's debate unless a compromise is reached regarding the 700-BILLION dollar bailout plan (don't even get me started on absurdness of this stunning piece of legislation). Excuse me - WHAT?

Here are the two possible motives for this ludicrous move:

a) John McCain wants the nation to see him as a truly selfless individual: presidential material. He will put aside his fondest dream to ensure the survival of the nation.

b) John McCain has been looking for an excuse to avoid debating face-to-face with Obama (Let's face it, Obama will clearly come out looking better). This provided him with the perfect opportunity.

The way I see it, he's playing politics either way. This is not a noble gesture. It is a ploy to get votes. Dang it, McCain, have some kind of shame. Can you sink any lower?

**UPDATE: And then McCain backs down and does the debate anyway. Way to stand up for your convictions, dude.
