As Kyle Hence recently said at a showing of 9/11: Press For Truth, "We can't let Pelosi get up there and champion the recommendations of this damn Commission without first getting to the bottom of what really happened, and answering all of the questions that the families raised." - Jon

After their victories in Tuesday's mid-term election, Democratic Party leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives are laying out their agenda for majority rule, while Republicans analyze their losses. Democrats have again called on President Bush to work with them on a plan that would bring U.S. troops home from Iraq.

Democratic leaders in the House used separate news conferences to talk about how they intend to use their new power in the House.

Voted into the majority with a gain of at least 30 seats in the House, Democrats plan to tackle a range of foreign and domestic issues, from the war in Iraq to the economy and corruption in Congress.

Sen. Charles Schumer, D-NY, (r), and Rep. Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill., chairman of^House Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Rahm Emanuel, chief architect of the Democrats' campaign strategy, says they will use their majority to move the country forward, while trying to avoid what he calls the politics of polarization practiced by Republicans.
