John McCain’s attempt to postpone Friday’s debate has been met with near-universal derision as a cynical political ploy, but not from Bill Clinton who once again shows an admirable willingness to put partisanship aside:

I presume he did that in good faith since I know he wanted — I remember he asked for more debates to go all around the country and so I don’t think we ought to overly parse that.

Recall that John McCain has been pretty rude to George W. Bush throughout his campaign, busy angrily denying that there’s any similarity between the two GOP leaders and their policy agenda. Nevertheless, Bush is sufficiently committed to conservatism that as best I can tell he’s been unfailingly helpful to McCain’s efforts. Not sometimes helpful but always helpful.
