    Obama has based his whole campaign on the premise that he was the "one we've been waiting for" to bring unity and bipartisianship to Washington.

    Well, we're still waiting.

    John McCain handed Obama the opportunity on a silver platter to display bipartisianship by inviting him to go together to Washington to help hammer out a deal on the bailout.

    Imagine McCain and Obama sitting down with Democrats together and then sitting down with Republicans together. This would have been historic and likely propelled Obama to an election victory.

    Instead Obama took the silver platter, tosses it in the hotel hallway with a note that read, "if you need me, call" and then went to the gym.

    Obama was then forced to come to Washington. When he arrived did he meet with rebellious House Republicans? No. Instead he unleashed his attack dogs on a willing press to spread the word that McCain had "blow the deal up".

    Of course we then came to find out there was no deal. But scoring political three point shots for the evening news cycle seems to be all that matters to Obama and the Democrats.

    Somehow I don't think this is the change we've all been waiting for.
