Baltimore Sun Editors Urge Dem. Leaders to Go After Del. Carter


Their conclusion:

There is no question that legislative leaders should not and will not accede to [Del. Jill Carter's] demands. They cannot negotiate with a hostage-taker. Sadly, that could, indeed, give her the power to scuttle the bill. But she should think very carefully before doing that. It may give her a fleeting moment of power, but it will do nothing to advance the goals she articulated today and will instead relegate her forever to political infamy. (source)
