Strange bedfellows

You’ve heard it said that politics makes strange bedfellows. Its certainly no secret that the Democrats absolutely hate the Bush administration. In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me to learn that some Democrats have voted against some things for no other reason than the fact that President Bush was for it.

That is why I was so amazed that the Bush bailout proposal was so quickly supported by the Democrats. Why would the Democrats so eagerly support the Bush administration?

Could it be that the Democrats—expecting to be in the White House before long— figured that they would soon be in charge of this 700 billion dollars which they could distribute however they wanted (maybe with their own political strings attached)?

Just wondering.
