Harry Reid Can't Make Up His Mind

Harry Reid yesterday said McCain's help with the financial crisis was essential. According to a McCain adviser:

"Yesterday, Harry Reid said that consensus couldn't be achieved without John McCain's leadership. John stepped up and is providing that leadership.
Today the Senator from Nevada changed his tune.
A Democrat tells ABC News that, in a phone call late this afternoon, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., told Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., that it would NOT be helpful for him to come back to Washington, D.C., to work on the Wall Street bailout bill.

McCain this afternoon suspended his campaign and said he would skip the first presidential debate in order to return to Capitol Hill to work on the log-jammed Bush administration legislation, which, as of Wednesday afternoon, was in peril.

McCain had phoned Reid to ask about the prospects of him, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., and others to sit down and work together on hammering out a bipartisan proposal.

"Sorry," Reid said to him, a Democrat close to Reid says.
I suppose Obama will be voting absent when it comes to hammering out a deal. Evidently in the Senate he is NOT The One they have been waiting for.

Reid is rediculous; the polls are what they are, the media drives the polls (from production to reporting) and little will change from 2004 - Kerry also led in the polls - recall? In fact, recall the exit polls that had the entire election handed to Kerry? The reality is; lines are drawn - poll shifts of 2 to 5 points (or well within any margin of error), do not bode well for Obama - he has Biden hanging like a millstone around his neck, the help he is receiving from people like Reid only ad to his appeal, and most people that are caught in the middle cannot identify with him. Most often heard remark in Massachsuetts: I did not want to see another Republican in office, but I cannot bring myself to vote for Obama - it is a confidence issue. Obama requires advice and consent prior to making any decision - McCain acts - that is very clear. If this were a 20 plus point swing, then you could worry.
