The McCain Gambit?

hat tip Race42008
“worst of all worlds he let Paulson and Bush drive bailout story for a week, then show up at a national security debate and have America think of him as the out of touch guy still hung up on the Surge. Now he is a leader, seeking to achieve bipartisan consensus to avoid catastrophe. He neutralizes Obama’s advantage because Obama has to fall in line behind the bailout Dodd will no-doubt drive through congress. Now economy is moot as they both support the same deal, only McCain is seen as a leader and Obama a follower. Debates resume next week, and McCain not seen as out of touch.”
