The thing is, McCain didn't actually DO anything when he suspended it. He made an appearance, similar to high school girls stopping by a party for a few minutes when it's almost over. He did not contirbute, and thank god. We don't need someone who admitedly doesn't know much about the economy trying to solve real economic issues...let's leave that for the experts, not the war veterans...
