US presidential rivals Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama are set to meet in their much-anticipated first head-to-head TV debate. Senator McCain had earlier vowed not to attend the forum in Mississippi until Congress approved a bail-out plan for US banks and financial institutions. But he reversed his decision after some progress was made towards a deal. The debate in Oxford, Mississippi, was due to focus on foreign policy but it is likely economic issues will come up. Earlier this week, Mr McCain announced he was suspending campaigning in order to concentrate on finding a solution to the nation's financial crisis. But less than 10 hours before the scheduled start of the debate at the University of Mississippi, Mr McCain's campaign announced it was "resuming all activities" and that the senator would take part. My strong sense is that the best thing I can do... is to go down to Mississippi and explain to the American people what is going on Senator Barack Obama Democratic presidential candidate Who will show best in the debate? How should foreign policy change? Send us your comments below Mr McCain was now optimistic that there had been "significant progress towards a bi-partisan agreement" on the bail-out, the campaign statement said. "Following the debate, he will return to Washington to ensure that all voices and interests are represented in the final agreement, especially those of taxpayers and homeowners," it added. Speaking to reporters on his way to the debate, Senator Obama said: "My strong sense is that the best thing I can do, rather than to inject presidential politics into some delicate negotiations, is to go down to Mississippi and explain to the American people what is going on." The BBC's Jamie Coomarasamy in Mississippi says this debate would have been a huge set-piece event under any circumstances - but the economic crisis and its political fallout have only heightened the sense of drama. Add to that Mr McCain's late decision to take part - and the fact this is his first head-to-head debate with Mr Obama - and it seems likely to attract a huge audience, our correspondent adds.

The US Commission on Presidential Debates had warned that Friday's debate would go ahead with or without Mr McCain. Mr Obama had always insisted he would attend the event. Aides to both Mr Obama and his rival have sought to play down expectations The topics for the 90-minute discussion are national security and foreign policy, considered Mr McCain's strengths, although correspondents say the financial crisis is almost certain to be discussed. Each campaign has sought to play down expectations for its own candidate while raising them for his opponent. Bill Burton, a spokesman for Mr Obama, sent an e-mail to reporters pointing to news stories suggesting Mr McCain was the better debater, particularly on foreign policy. "If he slips up, makes a mistake or fails to deliver a game-changing performance, it will be a serious blow to his campaign," Mr Burton said of Mr McCain. Meanwhile, senior McCain adviser Mark Salter said his candidate would have "to do well against a guy who's a pretty good debater, show presidential leadership and be able to speak directly to the American people about what he believes". 'Harmful' politics Talks between Congressional leaders and President George W Bush on a proposed $700bn (£380bn) package resumed on Friday morning after ending in deadlock on Thursday evening. The proposal ran into renewed difficulties when some Republican congressmen withheld their approval, offering an alternative scheme. Senators Harry Reid and Chris Dodd lay out their terms In a statement on Friday, Mr Bush conceded that there were disagreements over aspects of the plan, but stressed everyone agreed something substantial had to be done. Earlier, Democratic leaders in Congress criticised Mr McCain for his appearance there during efforts on Thursday to agree a deal. The Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, said the "insertion of presidential politics" into the delicate negotiations had been "harmful". The head of the Senate banking committee, Christopher Dodd, described Mr McCain's appearance in Congress as a "photo opportunity and political theatre that had nothing to do with us getting to work". Mr Obama accused his rival of creating "more problems rather than less". Mr McCain's campaign defended his intervention in the negotiations, saying that until then there had been no deal "that included adequate protections for the taxpayers". It accused the Illinois senator of playing politics and said there "never was a deal" and more work was needed to get both Republicans and Democrats on side.
