Weigel is making sense:

Nothing has changed in the last 48 hours except the possibility of Congress staying at work until Sunday and some bad polls for McCain. It's most assuredly a stunt, as John McCain and Barack Obama don't really matter right now, and McCain's action makes the bailout debate look even more (if such a thing is possible) like a world-historical crisis. Has a presidential debate ever been postponed 48 hours before it was supposed to start?
