E Pluribus Eaglets, Unum Headache

Clay Bennett, 1/27/12:
The US eagle has had a litter (clutch? what's the collective noun for baby eagles, anyway?) -- which, to fit the metaphor, really should be younger democracies -- which are now hungry for something-or-other.

OK, I'm stumped. Are those little birdies supposed to be the various demanding constituencies of the government, or greedy federal bureaucrats, or reactionary Tea Party-ists, or whiny Occupy brats, or our many foreign wars, or the economic health of the European Union, or what?
