Chicago Trib: Time for Hastert "Running Very Short"

Will Republicans get their ducks in a row today, nearly a week after Republican Representative Mark Foley resigned over improper communication with congressional pages? Editorial pages in newspapers around the country have been heaping scorn on the heads of Republican leaders, especially Dennis Hastert.

The Chicago Tribune weighs in:

The time for Hastert to give a clear, convincing picture of what he and GOP leadership knew about Foley is running very short.

How bad is this for Congress? There's serious talk about killing a program that gives teens, the majority of them high school juniors, a behind-the-scenes look at how a bill becomes a law. Is eliminating pages the only way to save them from--can we really be typing this--our nation's lawmakers?
