Which means he was also 19th on Moe Slezak's Enemies List.
What if we put Obama and McCain in a room alone together and told them not to come out until they had an Obama-McCain or McCain-Obama bailout bill.
But really, whose name would go first? You'd have to call it something like the Presidential Arrangement To Rescue Investors' Overextended Tail Act.
Drinking will be halted at the end of the seventh inning, the paper reports, and last for about an hour. Maybe depending on who's on-deck.
