The Bronze Lining

A friend of mine who often advises Democratic candidates writes me:

You should link to this story -- to supplement the many critical Pelosi stories you've linked to. At a minimum it's worth noting that House Democrats will be unambiguosly better than the Republicans they're replacing on the only major "free trade" issue on the agenda over the next two years: immigration. That plus the Democrats' greater instinctive sympathy for the Pigou Club should be at least a bronze lining for you.
Fair points. But as far as I know, no elected official of either party has yet qualified for the Pigou Club.
