Democrats wrong to criticize McCain’s campaign action
How dare Barack Obama and Harry Reid criticize John McCain for suspending his campaign?
Obama would do well to remember they are U.S. senators first — elected to serve the American people — and presidential candidates second.
Reid was the one who demanded McCain “tell us what to do” at the start of the financial crisis. As soon as McCain announced his intention to return to Washington to work with the Senate however, Reid said McCain's presence would “not be helpful.”
John McCain did the right thing. He put his duties as a senator before his campaign. He stressed the importance of setting aside partisan politics even in this crucial time in the election season.
These honorable actions demonstrate that, as president, John McCain will never let politics supersede the needs of the American people.
