Let them fly coach

It's easy to underestimate how much symbolism and theatrics affect political debates. Newt Gingrich lost much of the momentum of the 1994 "revolution" by complaining that he'd been required to use the back door of Air Force One. And now the CEOs of the cash-hemorrhaging Big Three automakers opted to fly in their luxury private jets to DC to ask for a handout.

UPDATE 6PM: "We do not have the votes."
