"What Sen. McCain was able to do ... was to help get all of the parties to the table. There had been announcements by Senate leaders saying that a deal had been reached earlier in the week. There were no votes for that deal. Sen. McCain knew time was short and he came back, he listened and he helped put together the framework of getting everybody to the table, which was necessary to produce a package to avoid a financial catastrophe for this country."

-- McCain campaign senior advisor Scott Schmidt Sunday on NBC's Meet the Press. The package the McCain campaign claimed credit for was defeated yesterday afternoon.
