(CNN) - A Democratic congressional leadership source tells CNN that Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, after talking Monday to Republican nominee John McCain, assured a member of the Senate Democratic leadership that McCain would be "fine," and vote for the bailout package.
But a senior McCain aide still insisted the Arizona senator hasn't decided how he'll vote, and won't until he sees the full and final package. Like Democrats, he is hoping the legislation will include an oversight board and a CEO compensation cap.
The Democratic leadership source said there is concern that with more and more Republicans raising concerns over the package, if McCain would vote against it, it would give other Republicans cover to oppose it as well. If that happens, Democrats would have to provide most of the votes - the last thing the Democratic leadership wants.
