1) John McCain has been in Congress for 26 years. Today is the day that he decides that he will go to work and care about the economy.
2) I've never been a big fan of Biden (re: probably racist, not funny, goofy name) but I'm telling you, if Obama had picked Dodd as a running mate, his presidency would be a shoe-in. Why? Dodd is the chairman of the Senate banking committee.
Actually, scratch that. You don't want the guy that seemingly (seemingly!) got us into this mess in a position of greater power.
3) According to the BBC:
The intense discussions reportedly saw US Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson literally down on one knee, begging Nancy Pelosi, the leader of the Democrats in the House of Representatives, to help push through the bail-out package.
If it's true, that is simultaneously hilarious and frightening at the same time. It takes a grown man degenerated into begging to really scare the reality into me.
