Leah at Corrente says the bailout is not a done deal:
The reaction across the blogisphere is the same; go to OPEN SECRET, or Kos, or MyDD, or Newsbusters, of ThinkProgress, or TPM or American Prospect; everyone agrees that the Democratic leadership is in danger of being royally snookered, once again. Matt Stoller has a petition signed by members of the House progressive caucus. I left a comment there and at least two people picked up on it – yes let’s try and get Obama to realize that he’s watching the near sure failure of the first two years of an Obama administration, happening right before his eyes, and he’s doing nothing? At least he’s equivicating.
Leah seems to think that the bailout is a GOP idea. From Jeralyn:
Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama said Sunday his Republican rival deserves no credit for helping to forge a tentative agreement on the $700 billion bailout of Wall Street.
Maybe TalkLeft is too far away for Leah. But she should at least read the posts at Corrente.
