So guys how will the american public, think of the two guys running for president now, that they backed the bill, and congress said no to it.

Any thoughts on this question...

Obama is gonna look good because he appeals to class envy. Americans, and many people in general, don't mind if someone gets rich in good times, but being rich in hard times brings out the anger.

Obama can pretty much repeat that he will tax the rich blahblahblah and will get a huge chunk of votes. Too bad the rich usually includes the people that create jobs but I don't think that many people know about this.

McCain needs to be able to hammer Obama's and the democrats involvement into blocking Fannie and Freddie reforms along with scaring people that corporations and other rich people who provide jobs will just move out of the country. In a world of sound bites, McCain will have a much harder time showing substance.

McCain looks like a fool because he is supposed to be his party's leader and he swooped in to DC to get them together and apparently failed as 2/3 of his party voted against it. I'm waiting to see his spin on this.

Obama is just lucky. If this passed the house and he voted for it...

Neither one of them look all that great because they both supported it and still do.

I don't think either of them has changed their positions or plan to.

McCain is blaming Obama!

Sorry, that's just ridiculous!

Mr Obama was the first to back the president on passing the rescue bill that became so hugely unpopular with the taxpayers. He didn't even bother to wait a bit to see what the people had to say about it -- it was their money. One would say that Mr Obama calculated wrong, but there is really no consequence, for the mind of an American voter works mysterious ways.
