Graham: Treasury Plan Is "dead"

Sen. Lindsey Graham – one of John McCain’s closest Senate allies – just told reporters at the Capitol: “The Paulson plan is dead.”

It wasn't clear whether Graham meant the $700 billion plan Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson proposed earlier this week or the modified, compromise plan congressional negotiators came up with Thursday afternoon.  But no matter -- Graham said both plans are "going nowhere."
