Paulson to McCain: I Need Your Help
According to CBS' Bob Shieffer, Henry Paulson privately called McCain and urgently told him he needed his help in Washington to convince his fellow Republicans to support the bailout.
Many conservatives are against it, some on principled grounds while others Hate it, after hearing from their constituents who HATE it. For those in the middle, they need political cover, and they are hoping McCain can give it to them.
No word yet, on whether Paulson called Obama as well but it doesn't appear so.
In any case, Obama has been invited to be part of the bi-partisan solution.
