"Historians looking back on the Bush presidency may well wonder if Congress actually existed. Time and time again, President Bush has run circles around what is, at least on paper, a co-equal branch of government. Sometimes he doesn't bother to ask Congress for its approval. Sometimes he demands it - and gets it. Amazingly enough, that didn't change when the Democrats won control of the House and Senate. They just make a bit more fuss before rolling over."

"Americans need to know what Mr. Bush knew on both Iraq and Iran, and when he knew it. Anything less is unacceptable."

Good news! New Jersey is set to abolish the death penalty. Also, Connecticut comes up with an interesting solution as to where to hold the arguments.

FRIDAY NEWS:

* Analysis: examining the costs of Bush's inability to compromise.
* The administration case against the Liberty City Seven, charged with plotting to blow up the Sears Tower, falters.
* Energy industry lobbyists cripple much needed energy bill.

What's that? Metro track work alone might make me an hour late coming home tomorrow? Fan-tas-tic.
