The Wall Street bailout package hammered out by congressional and administration negotiators over the weekend is dividing the House of Representatives and putting party leaders into a panic as a vote draws near, bloggers declare. CBS, meanwhile, may have more footage on the way of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) struggling to answer questions from Katie Couric.

Democratic leaders are scurrying around the House floor, trying to pressure their party into supporting the flawed bailout plan, Michelle Malkin writes. The bailout has led to intensely personal and internal conflict for individual members, Kagro X declares at Daily Kos, pointing out Democrats who have expressed personal offense at the notion of bailing out Wall Street during the pre-vote debate.

Columnist Howard Kurtz says sources tell him CBS has two more clips of Palin stumbling through interview questions with Katie Couric, prompting TalkingPointsMemo
