First off 14 Questions for Bernanke and Paulson, not that they will answer them.
Paulson got grilled by the GOP. I wonder if McCain knew that his peers had his back before he decided to suspend campaigning. And it's not clear to me who reached out to whom on this issue. But not to worry, a broad agreement has been reached but you know the devil is in the details.
For an outsider's view see Jerome a Paris' article at The Oil Drum. The Drummers are beating their drums quite loudly. The level of distrust and skepticism is as high as I have seen anywhere. Watch this video if you want a birds-eye view as to why. Could it be King Paulson in the future?
