I know someone posted something similar about an expired passport, but I want to know if I can travel domestically within the US using only my Canadian driver's license. (I am here on an H-1B visa) Extended version:

I have domestic travel plans for February (approx 4 weeks from now). Passport renewal (it is currently valid but expires in April) takes approx 4 weeks by mail. (required for Canadians living in US as far as I know). I am planning on going to the UK in April and definitely need my passport then. Should I send it now and risk not having it for February? Or should I wait until I get back from Feb and keep fingers very tightly crossed it will be sent back by April (6 weeks later). I work and only have these days off (the planned travel ones in Feb and April) so cannot go to DMV, cross Canadian border, or do any other mon-fri/time-consuming sort of things.
Short question: Can I travel within US on H1-B using only valid Canadian driver's license? (if passport is still in mail to or from renewal place?). (TSA site indicates a strong maybe...looking for 'real-life' feedback).
