The Boxer Rebellion
Michelle has a bunch of great quotes that Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) laid on Condiloser Rice. Only Boxer and John Kerry, who apparently is no longer running for president and has his spine back in place, voted against Condi. From the NY Times:
The Republicans who voted for Ms. Rice were Senator Richard G. Lugar of Indiana, the committee chairman, and Senators Chuck Hagel of Nebraska, Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island, Norm Coleman of Minnesota, George V. Voinovich of Ohio, Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, John E. Sununu of New Hampshire, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Mel Martinez of Florida.They must all really hate America if they think Condi is acceptable as Secretary of State.
Democrats voting in favor were Senators Joseph R. Biden of Delaware, the ranking minority member; Paul S. Sarbanes of Maryland; Christopher J. Dodd of Connecticut; Russell D. Feingold of Wisconsin; Bill Nelson of Florida; and Barack Obama of Illinois.
