Evan Bayh voted against Rice? Seriously? He might as well have printed up "Bayh '08!" stickers and plastered the Senate podium with them.
You know who's not running? Lieberman. His argument that Rice's great virtue is "the world knows she has the President's trust and confidence" is severely lacking in Joementu . What if we started nominating people who simply inspired trust and confidence, rather than showing their virtues to a select few? Wouldn't that just work better all around? And what if we, speaking as a party now, started challenging those who long ago ceased inspiring trust and confidence in us? Yeah, that sounds like a good idea.
P.S -- Sorry for the awful, awful, pun.
