Time for History
Here we are...waiting.
The a.m. started off with a news conference with the Gov. He had an event at 8:30 this a.m. in the Riverbend neighborhood in Des Moines (Ed Fallon's district?)
He said again how the legislators don't have the legal power to override his veto during special session. He said they're not doing this the right way. I asked him why he was doing the event now...just an hour or so away from when lawmakers were set to begin the override process.
He said he needed to show the implications of their action, if they override him. When are they supposed to see this? We don't have a 9am newscast. By the time they watch, this event should be long finished at the Statehouse. Or so we hope.
Boths sides caucused. Repubs were quick (No surprise. Not much drama in what they're about to do.) Dems first met with the Gov. (Last minute plea?) Now they're caucusing. Too bad they don't let us in those things. I'd like to be a fly on the wall. I heard Culver's talking to them, too. I wonder how long this will take.
