    The lack of compassion and honor in this situation is appalling.

      are not playing in the same game as the "serious" people at all. Talking and thinking about such notions, and getting all misty about "paying it forward" and Rainbow Politics and Big Tents and all that, without also having some kind of steel in the spine (think Tip O'Neill) guarantees nothing but a faster skid down the imperial slope.

      I wonder: does Ms. Pelosi have that kind of steel, ultimately? Reid seems to be of the pasta-way-past-al-dente persuasion...
