Horizon shot

I race sailboats. One of the most satisfying views in a race is near the end when you look back and see all the competition far behind. It's called a horizon shot. Newt Gingrich refers to horizons as he lists the seven things that the Republicans need to regain majority status (again HT to Tapscott). And the horizons that he refers to are the House and the White House. In two years, GWB retires. The entire House of Representatives faces election in two years. A two year horizon for both with completely different perspectives. And Gingrich warns that the House's perspective had better be getting along with the voters instead of getting along with the White House.
And again, we'll see what that perspective really is depending on who the House leadership elects tomorrow.
