As Democrats brace for a November wave that threatens their control of the House, party leaders are preparing a brutal triage of their own members in hopes of saving enough seats to keep a slim grip on the majority.
In the next two weeks, Democratic leaders will review new polls and other data that show whether vulnerable incumbents have a path to victory. If not, the party is poised to redirect money to concentrate on trying to protect up to two dozen lawmakers who appear to be in the strongest position to fend off their challengers.
Speaker Table Cloth flies to Canada to wage war on oil, Calgary Herald :
With both sides declaring victory in their meetings with U.S. Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and with the most powerful woman in America not commenting, we can only hope that the U.S. Democrats who came to Ottawa this week will adopt a sensible middle ground on the oilsands debate.
Representatives of environmental organizations who emerged from a meeting with Pelosi Thursday say she spoke eloquently on the “moral imperative” to move to a green energy future for the sake of future generations. Here, we agree. It would be morally bereft of us not to do so. How we get there is quite another matter
I’d have given Mrs. Pelosi a pass, if she just pedaled to Canada.
