McCain: Huh?

Quote:
McCain said earlier this week he would not attend the debate if an agreement had not been reached on a $700 billion bailout plan for U.S. financial institutions.
Quote:
But by midday, McCain's campaign said the Republican presidential nominee believed enough progress had been made for him to travel to Mississippi to participate in the debate
Wait what?

Quote:
A Republican revolt stalled urgent efforts to lash together a national economic rescue plan Thursday, a chaotic turnaround on a day that had seemed headed for a success that President Bush, both political parties and their presidential candidates could celebrate at an extraordinary White House meeting.
Quote:
McCain's campaign statement described the meeting as "a contentious shouting match that did not seek to craft a bipartisan solution."
Quote:
Shortly after 10 p.m., Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., the lead House Democrat on the issue who had been in close talks with Paulson for days, accused Republicans of refusing to negotiate, CNNMoney.com reported. "At this point, we have absolutely no participation or cooperation from House Republicans," Frank said.
Quote:
Multiple sources said McCain didn't say much. Two Democratic leadership aides said he didn't speak until 43 minutes into the meeting.
Quote:
One Republican aide said that "not much has changed in the last 24 to 48 hours. I think it has to be pretty radically altered for House Republicans to support it."
That's progress?
