The Democrats prove to be the Party of the Big Tent on the question of involuntary servitude.
This has to be seen as a mere chapter of the ongoing manoeuvring by Pelosi and the various chairmen quondam/chairmen futuris within the Democratic caucus. Rangel was vocal in his support for Hoyer over Murtha for the majority leader slot, and Pelosi even choosing to publicly discuss Rangel's scheme must be seen as a riposte.
Speaking of Rangel's draft bill--do we suppose the next version he puts out will count draftees as 3/5ths of a person for purposes of apportionment?
