Dissenting Votes


From CNN: Senate panel approves Rice for secretary of state.

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday voted 16-2 in favor of confirming Condoleezza Rice as secretary of state. ... Democratic Sens. Barbara Boxer of California and John Kerry of Massachusetts were the two dissenting votes on the committee.

Charles Johnson has some good observations on Kerry (Dems Show Their Irrelevance at Rice Hearing) and Boxer (The Difference Between Grandstanding and Lying).

UPDATE -- January 26: This cartoon appears in yesterday's (Tuesday's) The Detroit News.
