Tauscher Thowing a Bone To Netroots?

Is East Bay Congresswoman Ellen Tauscher, recently dubbed the “second most disliked Democrat” in Congress by U.S. News & World Report, trying to cauterize all that leftist anger being shot her way? Yesterday, the Los Angeles Times reported that Tauscher has agreed to push a House version of Senator Ted Kennedy’s bill requiring congressional approval of President Bush’s troop escalation in Iraq. “We have to take a stand,” Tauscher said. Any guesses on whether this will calm the DailyKos frenzy?
