Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Agree. For those watching on tv, what will stick is McCain wandering aimlessly around in the background while (seemingly) president Obama spoke. He looks more like Grandpa Simpson every day.

Obama benefits from the fact that at a time like this, everyone wants to hear from someone in charge, just wants to know that someone is in charge. Obviously, the few occasions when Bush sticks his head out of his burrow only remind people more that he is in control of nothing. Obama has delivered far more calming messages than anyone. He is at this point the de facto president.
