Today's Hot Topic: Veto Advice
Ethics reform: The NYT criticizes President Bush for signaling that he may veto the lobbying reform bill that Congress passed this month. "If the president spikes the measure, Congress -- particularly Republicans intent on surviving beyond the Bush administration -- better quickly demonstrate how veto-proof their lobbying reform fervor has become," the editors write. The WSJ, on the other hand, argues that the president should veto the legislation because it doesn't go far enough in limiting congressional earmark spending. "Mr. Bush could explain his veto by saying he is trying to hold Congress to its reform pledge," the editors reason.
