Clinton to the rescue

I'm not going to sit and say Clinton has pure motives in this case. What I do know is that he's telling the truth. He appeared on Good Morning America and defended McCain's decision to suspend his campaign and return to Washington, calling well-deserved attention to the fact that McCain spent the summer months challenging Obama to debate all over the country -- challenges Obama stubbornly ignored. He didn't want to speak without his precious teleprompter (Most experienced critics know that in a standup, shoot-from-the-hip gun battle between the two, McCain would level Obama. Obama is too deliberate, rarely provides concise unprepared answers).
"We know he didn't do it because he's afraid because Sen. McCain wanted more debates," Clinton said, adding that he was "encouraged" by the joint statement from McCain and Sen. Barack Obama.

"You can put it off a few days the problem is it's hard to reschedule those things," Clinton said, "I presume he did that in good faith since I know he wanted -- I remember he asked for more debates to go all around the country and so I don't think we ought to overly parse that."
He even had kind words for Bush regarding his address to the nation -- I haven't yet viewed that.

I watched Letterman last night with a friend -- he acted all self-righteous about the fact McCain canceled on him. It was incredibly boring and repetitive as he tends to be -- constantly going on about how McCain shouldn't suspend his campaign but instead put Sarah Palin in charge (the "second-string quarterback"). Then he brought on the blowhard Keith Olberman -- thanks Dave. We needed a second, identical opinion to yours!
