The Democrats have held their first of undoubtedly many oversight hearings on how the Bush Administration is, well, administering the laws. This is a basic role of Congress that was suppressed during the last 6 years of Republican congressional rule (the minority party in Congress can’t call hearings). Story in New York Times (you can google for many more accounts of what went on)
Republicans on the committee appear to also be distancing themselves from this increasing unpopular presidency.
Note: this is so odd. It is almost like the presidency was a separate government, rather than a separate part of the U.S. government.
