A prominent GOP strategist said on Monday that John McCain handled his role in the bailout process poorly and would ultimately be hurt politically by the failure of the House of Representatives to pass the measure.

“To a certain extent, I think John gets hurt by this,” said Ed Rollins, a CNN contributor who worked on former Gov. Mike Huckabee’s primary campaign earlier this cycle. “He obviously, at the end of the day, said he was for it. But more important than that, he said he was the one who would bring them to the table and to a certain extent he will be viewed now as not being able to do that.”

Rollins added, “McCain is our nominee and [congressional Republicans] will do everything they can to help him, but they are not going to go over the cliff for him. They did that for Bush, and they thought that this measure was just too dramatic for their constituencies.”   Source Article
