Democrat Barack Obama called Republican rival John McCain out of touch with middle-class Americans a day after they clashed in their first presidential debate over who could best lead the US out of its financial crisis while waging wars on two fronts. Both presidential contenders turned their attention Saturday to the negotiations under way in Washington to broker a deal to bail out failing financial firms before the markets open Monday. McCain placed phone calls to President George W. Bush, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke and Republican congressional leaders to help steer a bailout deal. Obama also found time to speak by phone to Paulson, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Rep. Barney Frank about the congressional negotiations. In their first 90-minute televised debate, the two candidates sparred over foreign policy and the economy - including the $700 billion proposal to stabilize US markets being considered by Congress.
