Why the Democrats are a minority party

According to CNN (emphasis added):

The announcement came after Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the top-ranking Democrat in the House, emerged from a White House breakfast meeting with President Bush and Cheney to say the vice president needed to come forward.

“I guess I’m kind of old-fashioned,” Reid said. “He hasn’t had a press conference in three and a half years.”

Said Pelosi: “Open government demands that the vice president come clean with what happened … There’s probably a very simple answer to it, but we have to break this habit of the administration, of closed government without the openness that is healthy to a democracy.”

They said they did not tell Cheney to his face that he should come forward and that the vice president said little during the breakfast.

That’s just gutless.

    Maybe they were worried Cheney would tell them to go f*** themselves. ;)
