      ... here's the extra paragraph I added to the form letter:

      Congresswoman Pelosi, I am a constituent of yours and I already called you (for the first time ever) today on this issue and left a message. In the message, I stated that my future vote swings on this one issue. While this is unhesitatingly true, I did not mean to imply that I do not expect you to do the right thing. Truly, you are our only hope to stop this terrible legislation, and I trust you to show the forceful leadership it will take to keep waverers like Jim Cooper, Brad Ellsworth, Heath Schuler, and Dennis Moore on our side.

      (I got those names from this comments thread as the possible flips... remember, we only need to flip 6 of them by my count. And Dennis Moore I just added on because of Monty Python: "He steals from the poor, and gives to the rich - stupid bitch" never been more appropriate. But at the end of the episode he rethinks his strategy so I have hope.

      Yes, I take this seriously, but no harm in a little humor.)
