WASHINGTON -- As a member of Congress, the ever polite House Rules Committee Chairman David Dreier (R-San Dimas) helped promote the idea of  a bipartisan retreat to teach lawmakers how to be more civil to one another.      Though congressional civility retreats are a thing of the past, Dreier, who retired from the House in January, is once again promoting the idea of retreats. In his new role, he will lead a commission to organize gatherings at Sunnylands, the Annenberg estate in Rancho Mirage, and other places to contemplate big issues, beginning with seeking ways to promote trade in the Pacific Rim.      The former congressman joined the Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands on Wednesday in announcing the creation of the Annenberg-Dreier Commission to organize events at Walter and Leonore Annenberg's former estate.
