I have heard considerable speculation that House committees will be announced tomorrow instead of (the presumed) Thursday. Another story making the rounds is that veteran Democrats have used their seniority to get on Appropriations. This could cause problems when the time comes to vote the bill out of committee. Democrats might actually find themselves with some leverage. Of course, unless the numbers change between now and mark-up, only hard-right conservatives are going to want to vote for that bill.
