The right end result, but for the wrong reason is the way I would describe Tom Tancredo's call for DeLay to step aside...

Despite Tancredo saying the charges against DeLay "lack merit" and are "trumped-up", he nonetheless calls for DeLay to consider stepping aside so the "charges can be dealt with in a less hostile environment, as they have proven to be an unnecessary distraction".

I, of course, disagree - DeLay has done things that warrant his removal as Majority Leader. So, I'm conflicted... while I'd like to see the GOP come to their senses and get rid of the guy, I'd like it to be for the right reasons... and not because the GOP is getting weak-kneed in the face of Democratic criticism.
