In a joint news conference, Congressional leaders Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, accompanied by DNC Chairman Howard Dean, issued a stirring call for unity in light of the historic recent developments in the Middle East and new estimates that Social Security will go broke sooner than expected.
"We feel that divisive, partisan bickering is unacceptable if the price to be paid is less security for future generations," said Dean. Reid was quick to add that he and Pelosi had agreed to work constructively with the Republican leadership on fashioning a bipartisan Social Security reform bill that would strengthen the system for decades to come.
Pelosi stressed the brilliance of the Wolfowitz nomination to the World Bank as the personal turning point in her appreciation of President Bush.
