    Ever since Kucinich started making a stink, and especially after he changed his mind, I've had a nagging feeling that this was all a ploy to get wavering Democrats to come on board.

    Not that I'm complaining...it was a brilliant move and is likely to get a lot of 'yes' votes for the bill.

    Pretty good bargain if he got Obama to agree to campaign for him in return for him changing his vote.

    They tortured people to get false confessions to fraudulently justify our invading Iraq.

      Take a close look at what's been happening with the rest of the Ohio delegation in the last 24 hours.  He gave buckeye dems a hell of a lot of cover so they could scamper over the YES column without a lot of attention.  Besides Boccieri's commitment this morning, Mary Jo Kilroy announced an hour ago that she would support it and Marcy Kaptur is making vaguely positive noises to the Toledo Blade.  

      Dennis did not just fall off the turnip truck.
