John McCain Destroys Bi-Partisanship

Let's see. Here's the timeline. 1pm ET Senator Chris Dodd and others are sure there's going to be a deal. They're sure that everyone is on the same page. Then, later that afternoon, John McCain goes to meet with House Republicans prior to the big White House meeting. Then, everyone sits down at the White House for what looks like a rubber stamp meeting. No problem. We're all on the same page.

Suddenly, the Democrats are storming out and Secretary Paulson is having to beg them to come back into the room. House Republicans are saying they won't agree to any deal at all and that they want an approach completely different from the one approved by the President and Senate Democrats.

What changed? Hmmm.... The antagonists are the House Republicans. The House Republicans are the ones that met with John McCain. Suddenly, everything's in disaray, there's no deal, and John McCain has a mess to clean up. Can he really put everything back together after destroying it and make it look like he's the one that built the coalition and is the savior of America? Would he really go to these lengths in order to delay Friday night's debate and thus get rid of the Vice Presidential debate?

Yes. He would.
