In One Eye

I missed this yesterday as I was on my way back from Vacationland.
Despite some reservations, Gov. M. Jodi Rell has signed a law authorizing a legal challenge to a controversial federal school reform law that is the centerpiece of President Bush's education agenda.It truly has to kill the governor to do this since she hates to be involved in any confrontations, but Education Secretary Spellings' intransigence has forced the Brookfield clubwoman's hand.
No matter what the outcome, it doesn't look as if such a decision will hurt the governor's approval rating, which still stands at 79%.
