Congressional Hearings on Rice
I watched it this morning, missed a lot of the one the day before but caught the highlights. A lot of Senators on the grandstand. Couldn't help but come away thinking the dems should have nominated Barbra Boxer instead of Kerry. She really slammed Rice. If you caught the hearings or the highlights, who do you think "won"?
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
