Barry and Rhee Bond, Sort Of

Marion Barry, Chancellor Michelle Rhee's most vocal antagonist on the D.C. Council, has tempered his tone when it comes to the schools leader. Barry used to criticize Rhee for her spotty attendance and incomplete answers at past hearings. Maybe it's his new surgically acquired kidney, or more likely that Rhee sat for seven hours waiting to testify (Council tradition calls for citizens to get their shot at the microphone before officials), but Barry is a happy man.
"I see great improvement in how you approach this council," the Ward 8 council member said. "It makes us feel good."
"I like to make you feel good," Rhee said, as laughter broke out in the council chamber.
"It's on now," said Chairman Vincent C. Gray (D). "I think she threw down on you, Council member Barry."
