Ha! McCain's bold move caused Bush to step up to the plate and compromise, drawing up a deal that Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson would agree to.

Debates will be on as planned!

"Paulson reportedly compromises, will add limits on executive compensation"

This fact right here is gonna make this debate delay a non-issue after tonight, but the spin still spins the story into the ground.

Interesting how politics actually works. It seems so childish to me.

Paulson can only propose legislation, so he cannot compromise anything. Congress will do what they do; they do not need Paulson's approval.

What the heck does this have to do with what the Senate agrees to or not? An agreement between Paulson and Bush doesn't do anything for the Senate.

Yeah but they're gonna limit the "pay packages" of Wall Street execs and Bush and the Democrats seem to be in accord.

Tonight we'll find out for sure, but this is what it looks like is gonna happen, and the debates will go on as scheduled.

The new sources are still spinning a standoff between McCain and Obama! How freaking slow are they?

Bush did not blink - he had a nervous tick.

Well to be honest, he gives me a nervous tick.
