Real Leadership

The McCain stunt of course dominated the show today, and actually for a half a minute we thought it might be brilliant on the part of McCain, desperate as it was. But when Obama came out, he really showed what leadership is about.

We took calls for more than an hour after McCain's appearance but before Obama's. Many people had hoped Obama would do exactly what he did in refusing to "suspend" (whatever that means) his campaign, and saying we don't need to postpone the debate because presidents are challenged by a lot of things, can do more than one thing at the same time and need to actually be seen by people.

Actually, he did better than anyone had hoped. McCain looked like a fool by the end. Glad to see Democratic leaders hitting hard on it as well, pointing out how it is all politics. Not sure how the media will spin all this, though, and obviously haven't seen much as we've been on the air. What did you think?
