Being in a Chess Game
This is not a chess game. It is not about who can make the next move that will get the other in checkmate. What appears to be bold should appear to every American as purely political. In such a situation stiring the waters and bringing chaos is not a way to get anything done. This seems to be Senator McCain's contribution to the deal in Washington. President Bush, Secretary Paulson, Chairman Bernake, the Democrats, and the Republicans all seems to have been coming to an agreement. In steps Senator McCain and things seems to have dissolved. The mere presence of Senator McCain may have even caused Senator Boehener and others to rehash some old things and present "bold" new ones. Now, is not the time to go against his party for purely political reasons. This is not a chess game and the American people are not pawns.
