McCain, Obama In New Cold World War III Over Bailout Votes
Here's your blogging conventional wisdom update, which in this case sounds VERY LIKELY: Democrats will go out of their way to support a bailout bill by Friday, and then all of the Democrats will support it if it's a somewhat good one -- like the friendly Dodd proposal from yesterday -- and then, just you watch, the Republicans will all decide to vote against it (knowing that it will pass anyway) so as to run a populist campaign against the Obama-Pelosi-Bush-Wall Street Socialism Bill of 2008. ELECTION OVER. We'd like to tell the Democrats to make good policy instead of good politics, but screw that, vote against whatever because who cares? Everyone just remember to stock up on canned goods.
