What are you going to do if you’re elected and things get tough? Suspend being president? We’ve got a guy like that now!”
- - David Letterman
You know Dave, when one has 13 cars and 8 or 10 houses, one is used to the latitude of breaking off whatever one is doing and finding something else. The rest of us don't have that luxury. But his sense of entitlement does afford Sarah Palin the chance to pad her resume simply by cramming on foreign policy in first meetings with various dignitaries.
UPDATE: This looks like the reason that John McCain is moving to cancel debates:
SurveyUSA has just completed a snap poll on response to John McCain's request to cancel or postpone the presidential debate ....He realizes if the debate is on the financial crisis, both he and the Republicans lose. Everything all the way back to the Keating 5 will be brought up. He would not stand a chance. So, better to go to Washington and control the spin himself (or at least try to change the subject to Sarah Palin).
Refocus on Fin. Crisis 48%
Would canceling the debates be good for America? 14% say yes.
