McCain as leader

And it looks horrible. Not only did he pull what is clearly a political stunt by fake suspending his campaign (you really didn't think that meant that he stopped campaigning, did you?), but he clearly inserted himself into this mess to blow it up worse. He is starting to remind me of his idol, Teddy Roosevelt in that he seems to want to be the "bride at every wedding, or the corpse at every funeral."

What is more, as you read through this story, you constantly see McCain refusing to take a side. So he blew up negotiations, and now is circling looking to see which plan looks like it might work, so he can take credit for it. Or, alternatively, which plan he can use as a weapon against Obama. This isn't leadership. This is political grandstanding at a very bad time.

Country first? I think not.
