A BLUE DOG WITH A YELLOW STREAK:

As Obama Goes on the Attack, a Blue Dog Takes Some Heat (ELIZABETH WILLIAMSON in Belgrade, Mont., and STEPHANIE SIMON in Arkadelphia, Ark., 8/15/09, WSJ)

While Mr. Obama tried to talk up the benefits, and urgency, of action, voters in Arkadelphia, Ark., urged caution in a meeting that lasted more than three hours with Mr. Ross. The leader of the Blue Dog Democrats in the House, a group of centrists in the party, repeatedly said he was neither for or against the bill, because there is no final bill; it's still being amended.

I"I'm not here to defend the public option," Mr. Ross told the audience. "I'm not even sure I support the public option. That's why I'm here listening....I'm not doing this for your all's entertainment. I really do appreciate your comments."


Mr. Ross isn't going to be in the sequel to Profiles in Courage, huh?
