Maybe because he felt it had been too long since he had nabbed some headlines, Rep. Charlie Rangel has introduced a symbolic bill to reinstate the draft, which has no chance of becoming a law. This is becoming something of a habit for the Democrat, who introduced similar bills in 2003 and 2007. He said he believes lawmakers should require "all who enjoy the benefits of our democracy to contribute to the defense of the country.” [WaPo]
