Does this whole thing seems like a set up by the Republicans. Call them “bad mind” to back-off the deal however it is great politics.
So who will save the bail-out…John McCain. The Republicans set the trap and as usual Democrats fall for it. By the end of the day there will be an agreement because McCain was able to get the Republicans in congress “in line”. He will fly to Mississippi looking like a hero.
Now the Democrats have the advantage but they will not take it.
Option 1. – Call a news conference right before the bail out meeting and ask the McCain and Obama stay out of the negotiation and go debate.
Option 2. – Allow the Republicans to present their plan and disagree with it. Now Obama has to play hero.
Democrats will not do any of this…they just don’t know how to play the game….
