The Hayden nomination
Well, that was quick

Can anybody tell your blogstress how the nomination of Gen. Michael V. Hayden to the directorate of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) went, in the course of a day, from being "troubled" to "on track"? At his nomination hearing, Hayden consistently stonewalled on significant questions: detainees, NSA domestic spying and his role in such. (Of course, toi et moi will never know what he told the senators on double super-secret background in the closed session.)

Your cybertrix believes that unless every Democrat on that committee votes "no" on moving this nomination to the floor, the idea of an opposition party is a cruel illusion.
