Yesterday, the House of Representatives voted to loosen restrictions on embryonic stem-cell research, this despite opposition from the White House. Dubbyuh threatened to veto the legislation if it ever crossed his desk. And golly, on Monday, Dubbyuh and Frist got rolled on the "nuclear option". Whatever happend to Dubbyuh's political capital? With his poll numbers dropping like a rock, he's looking like the lamest duck to come down the pike in about 70 years. In th best case scenario, this will lead to a return to the center in American politics as cowed moderates take heart and vote their conscience and in the best interest of all Americans instead of simply rubber-stamping the Administration agenda.
