After John McCain's bold (though risky) decision to suspend his campaign, he has stunningly erased a three-point lead and now is tied with Obama at 46-46 in Thursday's Gallup Poll.
The poll included interviews taken on Wednesday -- when McCain said he would fly to Washington to work on the bailout bill, suspend his presidential quest and possibly not appear at Friday's scheduled debate.
Those were bold decisions, and maybe Americans appreciated them as Presidential.
On the other hand, the Gallup pollsters point out that McCain has been gaining on Obama for days.
Obama is not appearing presidential to enough Americans in this time of financial crisis.
Meanwhile, the Republicans refuse to sign on the Bailout. At one point, the Treasury Secretary literally got on one knee as if begging Pelosi to don't let the deal blow up.
Bush is stunned, as he thought he could bring the 2 sides together.
