Here Come The Robespierres


Ellen Tauscher, who chairs the centrist House New Democrat Coalition, seems to be turning into a Lieberman-like target of the activist left in 2008. (It's been a while, however, since I've seen one of those sites talk about taking out Steny Hoyer; perhaps he's become too senior to topple.)

On the Senate side, meanwhile, I gather there's already plotting around a possible 2008 primary challenge to Montana's Max Baucus.
