Cohen, Richard E.

National Journal;10/13/2007, Vol. 39 Issue 39, p39
The article focuses on the actions being taken by U.S. Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California to show her opposition to the decision of U.S. President George W. Bush to veto the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) legislation. Pelosi decided to set October 18, 2007 as the date for the House to override the vetoed legislation. Pelosi's strategists argue that Democrats will still benefit by showing a sharp contrast between themselves and congressional Republicans despite their defeated attempt to override the veto.
