Captain’s Quarters points out the following from John Mcain on the Rice nomination debate:
So I wonder why we are starting this new Congress with a protracted debate about a foregone conclusion,” McCain said. Since Rice is qualified for the job, he said, “I can only conclude that we are doing this for no other reason than because of lingering bitterness over the outcome of the election.
I’m no McCain fan, but when the guy gets somethign right he usually does it in as big a way as he does everything and this is one of those times. There may be hope for the guy yet.
CQ has some other interesting points, too.
