Condoleezza Rice Confirmed

The Senate has just voted to confirm Dr. Condoleezza Rice as Secretary of State by 85 votes to 13. The 13 include most of the Usual Suspects: (Kerry, Byrd, Boxer, Bayh, Dayton, Harkin, Jeffords, Kennedy, Reed, Durbin, Lautenberg, and Levin).
While not entirely persuaded that Dr. Rice is the best possible choice for the position, El Jefe is nevertheless glad to see her confirmed. Dr. Rice, of course, has just acquired the greatest distinction that it is possible for an American political figure to obtain: namely, the right, for the rest of her life, to be a “former Secretary of State.” For Dr. Rice, the Gravy Train, in the form of future offices, professorships, book deals, board memberships, guest commentator positions, etc., etc., just arrived.
