Your Good News/Bad News Post Of The Day

The good news is that House Republicans continue to put pressure on the Democratic leadership to allow for a vote on offshore drilling.

You know, maybe Speaker Pelosi actually would feel pressure to schedule a vote if the White House placed her in the spotlight. Too bad that it appears we won’t find out; the White House’s political operation oftentimes shows little to no stomach for a beneficial political fight. One wonders why they are in the politics business to begin with.
