ELECTION? HECK, WE’RE READY FOR OUR PORTRAITS!

The New York Times reports that some Democrats have become giddy at what they feel is the near-certainty they will soon be in power in Washington.  And with that optimism comes serious preparation:

Representative Barney Frank, Democrat of Massachusetts, who is in line to become chairman of the Financial Services Committee in a Democratic House, offered wry evidence of the changing perception of the race. His office, Mr. Frank said, has been contacted by a portrait-painting firm offering to talk about possibilities for the traditional committee chairman’s painting, one of those perks of power long absent from the lives of House Democrats.
