"McCain has not attacked the Paulson deal," said a third Republican
***who was briefed by McCain direclty.*** "Unlike the [Democrats] in
the [White House] meeting, he didn't raise his voice or cause a
ruckus. He is urging all sides to come together."

***emphasis mine***

Sorry, if you're getting briefed by the candidate yourself, you're not
a reliable source.
