POLITICS: Tough Job

The busiest lobbiest in Washington over the next few months? It may be Jim Douglas, the new Republican governor of Vermont. You know, Vermont, who voted overwhelmingly for Al Gore in 2000 (and, if I remember right, for John McCain in the Republican primaries); whose lone Congressman is a socialist; who has one Senator who tied up and slimed Bush's judicial nominees as Judiciary Committee chairman, and another who gave the Democrats the Senate by switching parties; and whose outgoing Democratic governor wants to run for President in 2004. Douglas is going to have to do some real groveling to get Vermont's interests heard by anybody in the new Republican Washington.
