My Heroes!!!
Those who voted against Ms. Rice included Jim Jeffords (the Senate's lone independent) of Vermont, and Democrats Mark Dayton of Minnesota, Barbara Boxer of California, (Rice's most outspoken critic), Edward M. Kennedy and John Kerry of Massachusetts, Carl Levin of Michigan, Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia, Jack Reed of Rhode Island, Richard Durbin of Illinois, Daniel Akaka of Hawaii, Evan Bayh of Indiana, Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey and Tom Harkin of Iowa. (Two Republicans, Judd Gregg of New Hampshire and Conrad Burns of Montana, did not vote.) I must confess, I'm disappointed in New York's senators for their votes. While I understand Hillary's (assuming she's trying to moderate herself to run for the White House in 2008), I'm still disappointed.
