I usually post a link to "Budget Battles," my weekly column on nationlajournal.com, within a day or so of it being published. But this week I decided to wait a few extra days because of a presentation I was asked to make about the column to a number of members of the House of Representatives. For those of you who haven't seen it, here's the link.
The column talks about the increasingly obvious decision of the Bush administration to be satisfied with not having a positive legacy.
