Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid said he got word John McCain will support the bailout.

“I got some good news in the last hour or so … it appears that Sen. McCain is going to come out for this,” Reid said, according to The Hill.

"It appears" are the operative words here. McCain has not made any public statements indicating this is true. Why would he let Reid break the news on this?

How mad would it make TH readers if McCain supported this thing???
Is there any chance Reid is misspeaking, or trying to make people mad at McCain?

Update: Commenter Sarah writes:
"Either Sen. Reid is not telling the truth or the person who I spoke with in Sen. McCain's office lied to me. I just contacted Sen. John McCain's DC office not 1/2 an hour ago (of whom I am a constituent) and was informed by the nice woman on the other end that Sen. McCain is voting NO on the $700 billion "No Wall Street Banker Left Behind" bill. I called 202-224-2235."
