ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos Reports: When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., go to the White House on Wednesday afternoon, they will agree to form the Bipartisan Congressional Working Group President Bush called for in the State of the Union address, on the condition that they get to pick the members.
It will be a large and rather unwieldy group, including leadership representatives and the Chairmen and ranking members of the Armed Services, Foreign Affairs, Intelligence, Appropriations and Homeland Security Committees. Other key subcommittee members will also be called in on an as needed basis.
Democratic leadership officials were skeptical about prospects for the group. Said one: "We have zero expectations."
