Stimulus Response(s) (Updated)

UPDATE: Greg Palast applauds Obama's moves on the stimulus bill: "Look, don't get your hopes up. But it may turn out the new President's ... a Democrat!"

Stuart Rothenberg:
“I think what the House Republicans did was totally right,” Mr. Rothenberg said. “There is no political benefit for them in being politically co-opted by the new president,” given that most come from districts drawn to be packed with conservative Republican voters.
Howie P.S.: Sounds to me like the "old politics" is alive and well, for now. E. J. Dionne lays out the differences of opinion on stimulus inside the Democratic "family." About the other "family," there's "Republicans in high-stakes challenge to Obama (Reuters)."
