There's a winter storm warning in effect in the Washington, DC metro area from midnight tonight to 6 a.m. on Sunday, with possible snowfall of five to 10 inches on Saturday. William Kristol suggests this is an excellent reason to stop trying to reform health care:
There's a really big snowstorm coming to D.C.tonight. It would be unsafe to ask all the staffers and Hill employees who'd be needed at the Capitol if Congress stays open all hours this weekend, as Harry Reid intends, to drive to and from work--especially since many will have to do so at night, and they won't be well-rested. So from the point of view of public safety and personal well-being, Ben Nelson can do everyone a favor, announce today he won't vote for cloture, and let everyone stay home this weekend.
