WHAT NEXT? I feel like we're precariously close to the point in the Schiavo case when James Baker gets put on a plane to Florida, and the infantry--I mean the College Republicans--get called in to cause chaos.

That said, the fact that the White House has been relatively quiet about the case for the last twenty-four hours is an encouraging sign.

UPDATE: At a noon news conference, the President declined to name Terri Schiavo an enemy combatant, or to otherwise press for actions outside the federal judicial process. The White House, at least, appears to be standing down.
