Harry Reed just made a statement that he doesn't want McCain or Obama involved just yet in the negotiations...

University of Mississippi also says that they're having the debate. I guess if McCain doesn't show up, he won't look very good.

I'd like to hear them tell us, IN DEPTH, what they would propose to do moving forward to ensure we don't end up right back here again in the future.
Change the debate topic and let's see how they react to this very stressful and critical time in our country.
I agree that both McCain and Obama need to be intimately involved in these discussions but today, with the blackberries, video conferencing, etc, there is no reason why they can't do both.
This is about America and if can nip this business greed in the butt once and for all.

Obama has already turned it down. So its going to be interesting to see how things develop. I honestly feel Obama is gonna hurt himself big time on this one.
McCain’s call for both he and Obama to immediately suspend their presidential campaigns and return to Capitol Hill to address the ongoing economic crisis and proposed $700 billion financial sector bailout was dismissed quickly by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada as a “campaign photo op” for McCain.
“While I appreciate that both candidates have signaled their willingness to help, Congress and the Administration have a process in place to reach a solution to this unprecedented financial crisis,” he said, calling for the debate to occur on schedule.
“I understand that the candidates are putting together a joint statement at Senator Obama’s suggestion. But it would not be helpful at this time to have them come back during these negotiations and risk injecting presidential politics into this process or distract important talks about the future of our nation’s economy.”
I don't think it is about the businesses. According to a report on drudge only 4 rep members were for the plan.
