No Time Outs
Posted by Patrick Barry

So wait a minute.  Should Sunni and Shi'a drop shooting at each other in Iraq because John McCain is behind in the polls?  Should Vladimir Putin go to his dacha for a few weeks, all because John McCain needs some time to catch up?  Part of being President is to be able to manage a crisis, and more often than not its several at once.  Americans do not take time outs, and neither should he.

HT to Eric for the Sunni/Shi'a point.

Perhaps Senator McCain needs a time out. On Tuesday, the day before suspending his campaign, he told a reporter that "I have not had a chance to see it in writing [Paulson's proposal] so I have to examine that." The proposal is three pages long.
