Gideon Rachman

I am in Beijing. But even here it is hard to get away from the American presidential election campaign. This morning, in my role as all-purpose seer, I met a group of Chinese journalists. The first question I was asked was – “What do you think of McCain’s decision to suspend his campaign?” Since, the second question was – “When do you think the Chinese stock market will recover?” – I think I’ll answer the easy one .

 I’m doubtless revealing my bias here, but I think McCain’s decision is batty.
