"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

[Media Source*] It looks like Condoleezza Rice passed her first test towards confirmation as Secretary of State from the Senate. She now faces a vote from the Senate floor (which she will easily pass). The Senate Committee voted her 16-2, with Senator loser Kerry (who still seems angry that he lost) and Senator Barbara Boxer opposing. Boxer is probably just as angry that Bush was re-elected, and Condi will be confirmed shortly after Bush's inauguration.

An Audio of the event can be found here. Here is what John the loser Kerry had to say:
"The fact is, Dr. Rice is one of the principal architects, implementers and defenders of a series of administration policies and choices that in my judgment have not made our country as secure as it ought to be in the aftermath of 9/11 and have alienated much of the world," said Senator Kerry.
But Senator George Allen, a Virginia Republican countered with these remarks about Condi (her name is too hard to spell):
"When you look at the totality of her record, her experience, her principle, I respectfully ask my colleagues to confirm President Bush's choice to be secretary of state," said Mr. Allen. "I think she will do our country proud."
Another sign that Bush is in power (and proud of it too). Condi should be Secretary of State (replacing Powell) this Thursday. The world can hardly wait (well, maybe half of America can hardly wait). Selah!
