Question re: Debate & Bailout

Question. Now that House Republicans, with the quasi-backing of John McCain, have derailed the bailout's progress, can't Democrats in both chambers intentionally stall a final solution until tomorrow, thereby forcing McCain into a corner with respect to the debate? He would have to decide if he is going to make good on his claim that he won't show if a deal isn't done. Consensus opinion says that Barack Obama on stage by himself tonight for 90 minutes (in primetime!) is a disaster for McCain. Do Democrats have the power to make that happen? Sure looks like it.
