Joseph Cao was hailed six months ago as the future of the GOP. Yesterday, he voted to rebuke Joe Wilson. Can the most endangered Republican in the House survive?
As he made his way to the podium to give his health-care speech last Wednesday--a speech that would draw boos from Republican lawmakers, trigger Joe Wilson's now-notorious outburst, and eventually be likened to Nazism by angry protesters--President Obama was able to find at least one friendly Republican face in the crowd. "I love this guy!" Obama announced to Republicans gathered nearby as he shook hands with Rep. Joseph Cao (R-LA).
