yes votes for condi

By now everyone knows that the Senate confirmed condoleez rice by a vote of 85-13 and many of us are happy that the Democrats are beginning to show evidence of some backbone. The 13 senators may have seen some of the positive results that senator Barbara Boxer received in her Ohio challenge. However, there were a number of Democrat senators who voted with the regressives to confirm rice. Some are well known. People like Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer (from my state) and Barak Obama from Illinois. So while we should praise those who voted no, I think we need to remind those who voted yes that we are following what they are doing.

  1. I already wrote and called Nelson (Florida) and let him know I was extremely disappointed in his voting on this issue. I had called prior to the vote and surely he would listen, but no! Do they put something in the water up there? I was shocked by the list of liberal Dems voting for Rice.

  2. I was shocked too. I’ve written Hillary a few times and I’m really becoming disillusioned with her (Chuck has never been a favorite of mine). But it seems as if Clinton is more successful as a boogeyman to the Republicans than a legitimate voice of my views.
