McCain Folds Like a Blanket

As predicted, I mean, really, he had no choice:
OXFORD, Mississippi (CNN) -- Sen. John McCain will attend the first presidential debate as planned Friday night, his campaign announced.

McCain said earlier this week he would not attend the debate if an agreement had not been reached on a $700 billion bailout plan for Wall Street.

The outcome was up in the air Friday as lawmakers scrambled to agree on a plan.

But by midday, McCain's campaign said the Republican presidential nominee believed enough progress had been made for him to travel to Mississippi to participate in the debate, set for 9 p.m. ET at the University of Mississippi campus.
Translated, the hit they would take by having a cut out appear in his place was greater than the flip flop on a very poorly planned strategic and politically pandering move.

Seems this campaign has been all about pandering starting with the van Palin pick. Tonight we'll see what elese they have up their sleeve. We know they have already declared victory in the Debate that hasn't even happened yet:
John McCain has apparently already won it -- if you believe an Internet ad an astute reader spotted next to this piece in the online edition of the Wall Street Journal this morning.

And they talk about Obama being presumptuous! It does, however, show their hand in that they never seriously planned on skipping the debate.
