John McCain and his spokespeople were all over the place yesterday crediting John McCain for "suspending" his campaign, which he didn't, into D.C., and saving the bailout bill from certain death and global economy from certain collapse.
In spite of Super McCain's efforts, the bill died in the House today.
McCain, predictably, has responded by blaming everyone except those who were responsible--House Republicans, who mostly voted against the bill. Obama, by contrast, calmly urged people not to panic, and assured them that an emergency package will come.
In light of this, my first Electoral College prediction of the year--Obama takes at least 306 votes.
