What did Nancy Pelosi know when about the CIA's interrogation methods, echoes of the post-9/11 climate when Democrats voted for Iraq. Will the twists and turns weaken the Speaker and the Democratic leadership's unity? How will it affect the President's legislative agenda? Also, Obama's reversal on military tribunals for detainees: a flip-flop or a measured look at the situation from his new vantage point of the presidency?
