Democrats being in the majority makes life a bit more difficult for people like me. When they're in the minority, message is everything and the rules of the game are simpler. In the majority, message is still important but there are a lot more moving parts, many of which are not easily visible.

I really haven't written about the House Iraq Bill for this reason. It isn't perfect, but the choice isn't between nothing and a pony, it's between nothing and this. From what I understand Pelosi has called in every chip she has (and thrown some elbows) for the Bill. Whatever its imperfections, it's better than the realistic alternative. Let's hope it passes.
