TPM posts an email from a connected Dem:
The deal on the “bail out” is 98% done. Treasury has capitulated on almost every point. A draft is circulating on the Hill now. No one needs McCain to help do the remaining 2%….except the White House who has no standing on this matter on the Hill with either Democrats or Republicans.
They speculate the McCain will try to claim credit for the deal with this latest stunt.
Meanwhile the wackos readers at NRO are spinning furiously. McCain should show up “disheveled.” McCain is trying to rope-a-dope Obama. Get him to switch to a debate on the economy because Obama’s been prepping for foreign policy. And so on. One can hear their anguished cries between each and every line.
