did you guys actually read this? or watch the vid? oberman was oh so close too... just mentioned jokingly but it ain't a joke.. or it will be one on us.. she's actually consistent with the red highlights above.

a vote doesn't necessarily constitute power. read the red above again, slowly. lol

i agree and i think that what she's saying is that is most likely what she's going to try to do. it's obviously happened before. the constitution doesn't seem to limit her "working" with the senate.. and she is a bully..

some of you said senate would buck her exertion of power. how quickly we forget the mid term elections. have we withdrawn from IRQ? has shrubco been impeached for numerous violations? etc.. does pelosi have a backbone?

I think the trick is, the Code of the Senate, which I understand is written by and voted on by the senate "Senate Rules" would have to be rewritten specifically to give a Vice President [or President of the Senate] those controls. Back when the Senate was a new deal that might have been easy to institute but now that the Senate is very fully invested in its own power, the likelihood of it voting to hand over power to a VP, who could easily be of opposition party the ability to orchestrate the will of the Senate would be nil.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

one doesn't need the 1 vote to "run/influence" things.
