Terrific: Barack Obama, John McCain, and Lindsay Grahamnesty are united in their pledge to “fix up the country.”

President-elect Barack Obama and vanquished rival John McCain met for the first time since the November 4 election on Monday, pledging to work together to face the financial crisis and other national challenges.

“We’re going to have a good conversation about how we can do some work together to fix up the country,” Obama said, adding that he wanted to offer his thanks to McCain for his “outstanding service” to the country.

McCain, when asked generally whether he was hoping to help the Democratic president-elect, replied: “Obviously.”

…McCain, who lost his entourage of Secret Service officers and multiple staff when he lost the election, was accompanied in his meeting by his close friend and colleague, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.

Obama was joined by his chief of staff, Rep. Rahm Emanuel of Illinois.

I smell a massive foreclosure prevention program coming on, followed by the McCain-Obama Shamnesty 2.0.

Oh, crikey. Bush is going to leave half the crap sandwich for Barack Obama to spread around:

White House may let Obama decide part of bailout

The Bush administration has told top lawmakers it does not plan to use at least half of the $700 billion bailout fund that Congress approved this fall to aid the financial industry, congressional officials said Monday.

These officials said Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson passed the word over the weekend that he intends to leave $350 billion untouched when the administration leaves office on Jan. 20. That would mean the incoming Obama administration would decide whether and how the funds should be spent.

The disclosure comes at a time when Democrats are working to pass emergency legislation to spend $25 billion of the bailout money to provide loans to the battered auto industry.
