Heath Shuler: Pain in the Ass
As quoted in Glenn Thrush's Politico Blog:
"In order for us to get the confidence of America, it has to be done in a bipartisan way. We have to have everyone — Democrats and Republicans standing on the stage with the administration — saying, 'We got something done that was efficient, stimulative and timely.' I truly feel that's where maybe House leadership and Senate leadership have really failed."
Thrush speculates that this is an effort by Shuler to inoculate himself from the liberal, left-wing of the party to position himself for the 2010 NC US Senate race.
