The big question among Democrats on this Wednesday is whether there is any political harm from attending tonight's 80th birthday party for Rep. Charles Rangel. The 20 term Congressman is facing ethics charges and refuses to go quietly...His defiant speech yesterday left no doubt about that....
Let me say, I am not attending, but its not because I wouldn't like to. It's just I have to work tonight.
For those top Democrats, who suddenly put their own interest above those of Mr. Rangel's milestone, I say shame on you....Go to the party and wish him well...You can always call for his resignation tomorrow.
