Looks like this morning's congressional leadership forum has been canceled since too many of the congressional leaders need to stay in DC for votes and such thanks to some procedural wrangling. That's too bad, I was really sort of more interested in their thoughts than in hearing from the presidential candidates, since one has many, many, many opportunities to read presidential candidates' speeches and more than a few chances to see them live. Congressional leaders, by contrast, tend to be shadowy figures granted the occasional sound bite here or there but rarely able to lay out an account of what they think they're doing.
