Sorry, John, but that was too little too late September 28, 2008

Woody Allen once said that 80 per cent of success is showing up. That aphorism may have been on the mind of John McCain when he landed in Oxford, Mississippi, on Friday afternoon, having agreed at the final hour to participate in that night’s presidential debate with Barack Obama. Seventy two hours earlier, McCain had said he would skip the debate because his services were desperately needed in Washington, where he would ensure that Congress swiftly approved a $700bn bailout of the stricken US financial system.

Yet McCain’s trip to Washington accomplished nothing and may even have set back the negotiations in Washington. The fate of the bail out remains less clear than when McCain chose to get involved. But no matter. McCain decided to debate anyway, making clear that the whole idea was about manufactured drama from a campaign that loves nothing more than an audacious political stunt.
