House Republican leadership "optimistic" after meeting
Republican leaders in the House just stepped out of a closed door meeting to declare they were "optimistic" that their membership would support the bailout bill this afternoon. While they wouldn't talk specific numbers, they said they were continuing to speak with the various factions of their membership. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said middle-class Americans were beginning to see the impact of the credit crisis on their 401(k) plans and investments. Stay tuned: A vote could come between 12:30 p.m. and 1 p.m.
