CBS News:

Even though his campaign is no longer suspended, John McCain is staying in Washington this weekend to keep working on the bailout legislation. He will not be visiting Capital Hill, however, preferring to work out of his campaign office.

"He can effectively do what he needs to do by phone,'' said senior adviser Mark Salter. "He's calling members on both sides, talking to people in the administration, helping out as he can.''

WTF? The financial crisis was SO important that he had to "suspend" his campaign to come to Washington, but now he can contribute to the negotiations over the cell phone, but he's going to stay in Washington instead of going out to campaign? Does any of this make sense?

I'm curious, will any of his suggestions for this bailout include a federal spending freeze he advocated last night? Has he considered the ramifications? Will the unworkability of the Republican plan make McCain blink?
