John McCain called for the debates to be postponed until the economic crisis was fixed.

Barack Obama rejected this idea, saying that the debate must go on. He said, "part of the president’s job is to deal with more than one thing at once. In my mind it’s more important than ever.”

I want a president who can prioritize. One who will not spread himself too thin, and focus on the main problems of the day.

And this is supported by the many scientific studies showing that multitasking decreases performance and increases errors.

Don't dismiss this as showing that McCain can't handle the job. I'd say its wisdom in knowing ones limits. As much as Obama likes to think he can, no man can do eveything.
