Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) completely dismissed McCain's role in the meeting, saying that he spoke last, said nothing important and had little to do with the negotiations.
"Anyone in that meeting who tried to understand what John McCain said in that meeting, couldn't" understand whether he supported the deal, Reid said, according to a clip aired on MSNBC. "He didn't say anything substantive. ... He was the last person to talk in that meeting."
This isn't sounding like a very bipartisan, bicameral moment _ quite a change from the morning meeting where congressional negotiators thought they had a "fundamental agreement."
