McCain Camp Points Out Change in Obama's Speech

The McCain campaign points out that in his original prepared remarks in a speech in Denver, Colo., today, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., was going to say, "Democrats and Republicans in Washington have agreed on an emergency rescue plan that is our best and only way to prevent an economic catastrophe."

He changed this, though, to: "A package has not yet passed. And so one of the messages that I have to Congress is get this done. Democrats and Republicans step up to the plate."

I'm not quite certain that this packs the oomph of claiming credit for a bill's imminent passage a day before it spectacularly fails, but there ya go.
