Frustrated Legislators

Perhaps the frustration we thought was coming last year in the Tennessee House of Representatives is showing up this year:

It may be that the frustration which we expected to see last year has made its appearance this year instead. Democrats are beginning to come to the realization that the 107th General Assembly is likely to have fewer members of their party, making it less likely that they'll be able to influence who the next Speaker of the House is without a coalition. Republicans meanwhile are becoming frustrated with the slow pace of the legislative session since they can't raise campaign money while it is underway and both their primary opponents (if they have them) and any Democrats who they may have to face in November are busy having a field day campaigning, attempting to make the perceived Republican edge disappear by November.

the dems to me seem to be energized by thier prospects for the coming year and the repubs frustrated because even though they are in the majority they still can't seem to unite enough to run the show. most of the success that they have enjoyed has come when williams comes in and bails them out.

David your political prognostication has not been real good lately. Remember McCain/Palin and Speaker Mumpower.
