A brief word on Democratic party discipline

For three days dozens and dozens of Democratic Congressmen have been making speeches in the House opposing President Bush's escalation. The Republicans have a working war room off the House floor looking to pounce on even the slightest misstep to take the focus away from the resolution.

Not a single breathless story or talking point. Not one step out of line. That's pretty impressive message control.

Credit to Pelosi and Hoyer.

In response to this, The White House decided to try and change the subject by holding a press conference on Iran yesterday, and a speech on Afghanistan today. (9/11 tomorrow?)
