McCain probably went along with it because of media and political pressure. The Bush Administration was fully backing the first bill, and so was the MSM (to an extent).
Mr. McCain did try that stunt of 'suspending his Campaign' to go back to the Senate floor and help iron out the bill, but the backfired in his face. Really, supporting the bill was the easy and safe choice at the time.
