Waiting to Lead

Miss. lawmakers divided on bailout plan
First District Rep. Travis Childers, a member of the Blue Dog caucus, said he is waiting for the details of a final deal between the Bush administration and Congress' Democratic leaders. "I feel it is morally reprehensible that the middle class is not only suffering from a failing economy and rising costs but also now is being asked to foot the bill for Wall Street's bad decisions and reckless management as a result of deregulation," Childers said.
As noted just yesterday, Childers sits on the Financial Services committee. This isn't his fault. No one expects him to have the solution. But he should at least be on top of things and not just waiting to see what Bush and the other Democrats work out.

Childers is not "waiting to lead". He's "waiting on instructions" or at least "permission" from Nancy Pelosi and Barney Frank. "Waiting to follow" might be more like it.
