If some lawmakers aren't jumping the gun, there seems to be progress with getting the $700 bailout plan for financial firms approved. Rep. Barney Frank said, "I'm convinced that by Sunday we will have an agreement that people can understand on this bill." Earlier this morning, President Bush sought to reassure the public, since discussions spectacularly flamed out last night, “We will rise to the occasion. Republicans and Democrats will come together and pass a substantial rescue plan.” Well, the stock market believed it, ending the day up 118 points.
