Now that there's chaos, McCain agrees to debate

Let me get this straight. On Wednesday, when things are moving along smoothly in Washington, when a deal is still humming, John McCain announces that for the good of the country he is suspending his campaign, wants to postpone the debate, and is heading back to Washington to make sure a deal is reached on the bailout.

Now that the talks are in total chaos, that House Republicans say there is no deal, and it looks like everyone has had to go back to the drawing board, McCain says things are moving along well enough for him to attend Friday's debate. Am I missing something? Is he pretending today is opposite day? From CNN:

But by midday, McCain's campaign said the Republican presidential nominee believed enough progress had been made for him to travel to Mississippi to participate in the debate, set for 9 p.m. ET at the University of Mississippi campus.

"He is optimistic that there has been significant progress toward a bipartisan agreement now that there is a framework for all parties to be represented in negotiations, including Rep. [Roy] Blunt as a designated negotiator for House Republicans," the campaign said in a statement.

"The McCain campaign is resuming all activities and the senator will travel to the debate this afternoon."

I don't think I can take four years of this type of leadership. I don't care if Barack Obama goes in there and socializes everything, I'd rather listen to him than John McCain any day.
