"I thought the financial crisis gave John his best change to mount a comeback," Bush writes. "In periods of crisis, voters value experience and judgment over youth and charisma. By handling the challenge in a statesmanlike way, John could make a case he was the better candidate for the times."
Bush says he asked McCain to hold off on a meeting, citing concerns that it might jeopardize talks between congressional negotiators and then-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson. But Bush says McCain ignored his appeals--and thereby handed Obama an opportunity to describe him as "erratic."

LOL..No I dont.

I hope so!...just kidding...sort of ;-)
He definitely thought it might hurt the mid-term elections, because the publishers wanted to release it in September which would be better from a sales perspective, but he insisted that they wait until November.
