10. My Comments On Obama
"We wish you well."
"Nobody on this confirmation panel doesn't want this administration to succeed."
He's talking about his constituents being told to trust the bu$h administration, and Powell being an independent voice, and wanting her to be a mouthpiece of this "administration."
Seemed a little bit kiss-assy to me. What did you think?
