Go away John

Harry Reid has it exactly right:
I understand that the candidates are putting together a joint statement at Senator Obama's suggestion. But it would not be helpful at this time to have them come back during these negotiations and risk injecting presidential politics into this process or distract important talks about the future of our nation's economy. If that changes, we will call upon them. We need leadership; not a campaign photo op.
We have the most serious financial crisis in decades occupying the time of all the great (cough-cough) minds of Washington and John McCain's solution is to swamp the process with all the baggage of "The Most Important Presidential Election Campaign Evah"?

McCain has to have an inflated sense of his own self-importance if he thinks that he really has anything to contribute. He's a presidential candidate for fraks sake, not the president! As much as we may laugh and cry about Bush, he, Reid, Pelosi, Dodd, Franks, et al. are the one who actually have the power to address this situation. McCain coming back to D.C. would just muck it up even if his proposal was not the desperation ploy it obviously is.
