Interesting. Last week on the NewsHour,
the vacation stand-ins for Shields and Brooks both thought the Republicans wanted to stay away from this. The woman standing in for Shields said that at a recent press conference, Mitch McConnell had several times sidestepped making a strong statement of any sort on the ruling.
And that's supported by this article:http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0810/40776.html
I wonder if there's going to be a conflict between Senate Republicans and some House Republicans over this.
I say, Go for it, Republicans!
