One question arising from McCain’s move today has been how President Bush would respond to McCain’s suggestion of calling a conference with congressional leaders and the two presidential candidates. If he called one, it would obviously put pressure on Obama to follow McCain’s game-plan.
The AP now reports that Bush has done that, inviting McCain, Obama, and congressional leaders to the White House tomorrow afternoon. ABC is reporting that Obama has accepted the invitation.
The assistance Harry Reid offered to Obama with his comments this afternoon couldn’t have gone unnoticed at the White House, and this move certainly offers similar assistance to McCain.
