Poor politicians

I'm so glad I'm not one of the holdout Democrats.
Sure, I could have anything I wanted. Move the Washington Monument to Florida? No problem.
But the pressure!
Rep. Nancy Pelosi is a vote-getter, no question about it. She gets them the same way Lyndon Johnson did. "Grab them by their ... and their hearts and minds will follow."
My guess is they will get the votes to pass the abominable health care takeover bill.
When Johnson passed his civil rights bill, he told other senators that there would never be another Democrat elected to the Senate from Texas, his close friend Bobby Baker once told me.
Pelosi is asking House Democrats to give up their jobs to save Obama's, and apparently they are willing.
