The Backbone Temptation
The dynamic between the Bush administration continually works to tempt the Democrats into developing real backbones. Anytime the Democrats show a little spine, the Bush administration immediately confronts them with veto threats and then eagerly follows through. They've already promised to veto the Iraq funding bill with withdrawal deadlines that passed the House or the FISA bill without telecom immunity that came out of the Senate judiciary committee. Sooner or later, the Democrats in Congress will succumb to temptation and develop real backbones.
