What's Henry Gonna Do?

Nancy Pelosi will probably get the most media attention in the 110th Congress, but the Congressman I'll be most interested in is Henry Waxman, Chairman of the House Government Reform Committee. He'll be in charge of "investigating" the Bush Administration and Congressional corruption. What does that mean, really? I don't know - but I can't wait to find out.

Waxman made an interesting comment as a guest today on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopolous." Stephanopolous asked him whom he would subpoena about the Iraq War and other matters. Waxman said that he had no agenda (yeah right!), but that he would not repeat the "disgraceful" performance that Republicans demonstrated during the Clinton Impeachment debacle. A lot of people have argued that the Republican-led witch hunt during the Clinton/Lewinsky affair was a reaction to the Democrat-led witch hunt during Watergate. I'm interested to see if the cycle continues.
