Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL)
Democratic Nominee for President
Today Senator Obama addressed the bailout bill the failed to pass through the House (but probably will eventually in one form or another), as well as McCain's accusations that he had been "phoning it in" from the sidelines:
"I don't think me calling House Republican members would have been that helpful. I tend not to be that persuasive on that side of the aisle."
It's the truth. And it gets Barack his first Gold Star. In the spirit of Rosh Hashanah, mazel tov.
