Do you really think that Democrats had no choice in the matter? Certainly, there were Republicans who wanted the bill to pass in a certain form which might not withstand a partisan public debate. But even without control over the levers of parliamentary power, if the Democrats actually cared about the issue, they could have made a big public stink about the badness of the Republican proposals. It's not possible to "aggressively exclude" 93 senators and hundreds of representatives unless those senators and representatives are willing to be excluded.

The Democrats let Rove, Hastert and Frist "get away with it" because it serves their purposes to let a lousy bill pass. They can take credit for its passage if the consequences wait until after the election, and can blame the Republicans if the consequences arrive in September or October.
