President Bush addressed the nation last night. It was his first prime-time speech devoted exclusively to the economy. It's just one of many political firsts in Washington this September morning. Democratic and Republican lawmakers have been meeting throughout the night to hash out a deal on the $700-billion rescue plan. It's not clear whether the presidential and vice-presidential debates will take place as scheduled, or at all — John McCain is saying he will not show up at tomorrow's presidential debate in Mississippi until there's a bailout plan.
