Back Roads to the White House: Seizing the day

Excerpted from this post at Back Roads to the White House

There was a time when candidates shied away from politicking on the
anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. But that time
has passed. On Tuesday, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, launches a
seven-day "No Surrender Tour" with a rally in Sioux City, Iowa. In
Washington, D.C., another Republican, Rep. Ron Paul of Texas,
participates in a forum co-sponsored by the Center on Politics and
Foreign Relations, and the Financial Times. (The topic is a
provocative one any day of the week: "A Traditional Non-Intervention
Foreign Policy.") In New York, former Sen. Mike Gravel also
participates in a Sept. 11 forum. McCain's appearance comes at a time
when he is trying to revitalize his campaign, in part by focusing on
"fighting Islamic extremists."
