Well, not really. But as this article points out, we are probably only going to get one solid shot to do this right, and a half-measure that could survive a Bush veto would make people believe we had done something serious when we hadn’t. This is why the 2008 election is going to be sooo important. The Democrats should vote for a serious measure, have it vetoed or filibustered, and get the public ready for when a new administration takes over.
