This crisis had the same effect on McCain's campaign as a windshield does on a bug at 60MPH. He seemed erratic last week, now just finished giving a bland statement hoping things work out. I guess expecting him to lead would be too much. I'm afraid McCain is blowing it here. He should have either come out against it and risked his campaign on the reaction, or made a public appeal for everyone to support it and follow it up with aggressive arm twisting. Instead, he shadowed Obama and tried to get some air time but not take any risk. You can't play it safe when you're behind.
