"Suspending" campaign: Not smart

clipped from
Is the McCain campaign's decision to "suspend" campaigning and the Friday debate smart or not smart?
"It ranks somewhere on the stupidity scale between plain silly and numbingly desperate.... I’m confident that somehow the administration and the other 533 members of congress will be able to muddle through without tapping into the superior wisdom and intellect of their nominees. Sorry, john; it really sounds like you're afraid to debate. This sounds like the sort of ploy we used to use in junior high school elections." --- Mickey Edwards, Princeton lecturer and former Republican congressman
"Not smart. I agree with Mickey Edwards. It is not as if McCain has a reputation for being able to contribute to the solution of this economic problem, and it smacks of "you can run, but you can't hide." I think this is more likely to raise doubts rather than reassure independent voters." -- Joseph S. Nye, Jr., Professor at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government
