Deal Reached and McCain's Wasted GestureI expect McCain thought this would drag at least through the weekend. Now a deal's been reached, and I see a lot of credit going to Pelosi, and Dodd, and Frank. But everyone knows McCain came in at the 11th hour after all the hard work was done, and, even if he were to claim credit, we'd all laugh. Meanwhile the Republicans, some of whom(especially in the House) are still trying to hold it up, come off as the bad guys putting politics ahead of country.McCain scores nothing. Except a poisonous photo-op.
