Need for urgency, Obama says
Sen. Barack Obama said lawmakers will eventually agree on a bailout plan but said that there needs to be a їsense of urgency for everybodyї, reported CNN.
Obama told CNN after a White House meeting that some progress was made Thursday but he was concerned that the attendance of the two presidential hopefuls in the negotiations could cause problems.
їIїve been concerned for some time that when you start interjecting presidential politics into delicate negotiations, you could actually create more problems than less,ї Obama said. їIt is amazing what you can get done when the cameras are not on and people are not looking to get credit or allocate blame.ї
