Will Obama Join McCain

NBC’s First Read reports:

*** UPDATE *** NBC’s Andrea Mitchell reports that Obama campaign strategist Robert Gibbs said, Obama initiated contact at 8:30 this morning after discussing it on the flight to Tampa yesterday afternoon and again last night. They discussed a joint statement of shared principles on the bailout package — to help move it along toward consensus on the Hill.

At 2:35 p.m., McCain called back and mentioned whether they should meet at the White House and delay the debate. Asked whether they should delay the debate, Gibbs said that this is a global financial crisis — and there would be no better way to shed light this crisis than to debate it. Gibbs says they have not decided whether or not it would be better to postpone the debate — but want to talk to the sponsors (the debate commission) first.

If Obama joins, I suppose this gives McCain cover, but then doesn’t it elevate Obama?
