Becoming Increasingly More Obvious by the Minute

Senator John Kerry (D - The Hamptons) goes to Washington to cast that most elusive of all things, a vote:
Senate Panel Gives Rice Confirmation Nod

WASHINGTON Jan 19, 2005 — The Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted Wednesday to confirm Condoleezza Rice as secretary of state after two days of hearings in which she faced strenuous Democratic assaults on the Bush administration's handling of Iraq.

Pending approval by the full Senate, Rice would be the first black woman to hold the job. She was confirmed by a 16-2 vote with Democrats John Kerry of Massachusetts and Barbara Boxer of California voting no.

Other Democrats, including ranking member Joseph Biden of Delaware, had said they were reluctantly voting to elevate Rice to the nation's top diplomatic job. A vote by the full Senate was expected by Thursday.

Yes, yes, yes, she does testify that mistakes were made in Iraq. It's so very nice to know that both the poster and the reader read the full article.

Dr. Rice displays her Flying Squirrel Fighting Style for the Senate Hearing.
It made Sen. Boxer cry.
