Jim Lehrer asked both candidates: will you vote for the plan? Obama's answer, paraphrased: "I haven't seen the language, but government will have to intervene."

John McCain: "Sure." With a veritable shrug of the shoulder.

Sure? Sure?

Seems a little cavalier, considering how much drama has gone down on what should and shouldn't be in the rescue package this week.
