Here's a skeptical take on McCain's latest flip-flop, one that makes him look less decisive than ever. The writer is Sam Stein of The Huffington Post:
After days of saying that John McCain would not attend Friday's presidential debate unless an agreement on a bailout package for the markets was "locked-down," the McCain campaign has gone back on its word.On Friday, it announced that the Senator would head down to Mississippi even though, as they readily admit, much work remained needed on the bailout agreement.The whole episode left even conservatives admitting that the McCain campaign looked erratic and a bit foolish with no apparent direction or guiding principle.
McCain calls himself a maverick. But it looks more and more like he's simply confused.
