Ethics: Dems must be tripping
The story headline may be that the House Ethics Committee is returned to life.
But what will its target be?
Once staffed and organized, the committee is expected to undertake an investigation of overseas trips taken by House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas).
And how far can Dems go with that? Because, whilst other House Dems have not, as DeLay did, organised a gerrymander of their states' House districts, they have - hordes of them - been on overseas trips paid by parties having an interest in getting in their good books.
Overseas trips is a battleground, in short, on which GOP members in general, and DeLay in particular, can with some comfort utter the Presidential cry, Bring it on!
