A statement from his campaign, calling a drama queen a drama queen:
"John McCain sought to change the subject from his out-of-touch response to the economic crisis with a big announcement that he was 'suspending' his campaign. But the only thing McCain really wants suspended is the American people's disbelief. In fact, he's been in full campaign mode the entire time...

"When McCain finally arrived in Washington, almost twenty-four hours after his announcement -- and after Congressional leadership announced a deal in principle -- he huddled with his lobbyist campaign advisors while his running mate held a political rally and his political spokesmen and surrogates were out in full force, continuing to attack Barack Obama.

"So make no mistake: John McCain did not 'suspend' his campaign. He just turned a national crisis into an occasion to promote his campaign. It's become just another political stunt, aimed more at shoring up the Senator's aimed more at shoring up the Senator's political fortunes than the nation's economy. And it does nothing to help advance this critical legislation to protect the American people during this time of economic crisis."

Nothing wrong with Obama letting his team throw a haymaker or two for him. His own more tepid statement (and appropriately so) courtesy of Politico:
"At this point, my strong sense is that the best thing I can do rather than inject presidential politics into these delicate negotiations is to go to down to Mississippi, and explain to the American people what is going on and my vision for leading the country over the next four years."

Asked if the White House meeting was a mistake, Obama said:
"I'm not sure it was as productive as it could have been. But I think at this point it is important to move forward."

He'll be alone in the ring tonight. Save the knockout punch then, Barack.
