Notice the nearly three-to-one margin: "Who do you want to see take the lead role in setting policy for the country: George W. Bush or the Congress?"

Notice the nearly three-to-one margin:

"Who do you want to see take the lead role in setting policy for the country: George W. Bush or the Congress?" asks NBC/WSJ. The answer is congress by a 62 to 21 margin. One more reason to think that the weakness and conflict-aversion of the congressional Democrats is a bigger source of their low approval ratings than is any alleged overreaching. The President is very unpopular and people are apparently desperate for Congress to play a bigger role.

Get to work.
