Whatever one thinks of the costly water-projects bill that Congress successfully defended against a presidential veto this week, it found the legislative branch asserting its constitutional equality with the executive branch. Thatâ€™s been all too rare during George W. Bushâ€™s commanding presidency. But the veto override, which did not have help from Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback, may not lead to a more powerful Congress, especially on difficult issues such as Iraq spending.
