There’s a certain choreographed drama to the way everyone, or almost everyone, falls into line when it comes time to finally vote on a big bill like the Health Care Reform legislation.

And, for those of you with somewhat long memories, was the only House Democrat to consistently support President Bush’s push for partially phasing out Social Security in 2005.
