A look at the candidates
I'm sure I'm not alone in this thought, but on the way to work this morning I was struck by just how different these two men are when it comes to actually DEALING with problems.
Obama tells the world that IF he's asked, IF he's needed, he'll bother to show up for the JOB HE'S ACTUALLY BEING PAID FOR. Apparently though, the Democrat leadership doesn't think he has anything to offer to the discussion and hasn't asked him to come to work. As one caller to a morning talk show said today, it's as if Obama is being told, 'it's okay, you just go on and keep looking pretty, we'll take care of the work'.
McCain, on the other hand, took the initiative to suspend his campaign so he can focus on the bigger issue. Once again, we see that he is putting 'Country First', even over his ambitions to lead said country. The left goes on to whine about how a leader needs to be able to multitask. True, but a leader also needs to prioritize and delegate and at least McCain knows that a presidential campaign isn't as important as dealing with this financial mess.
