WTF! Biden endorsing Negroponte!
This is an absolute outrage. I will not stand for this! How many more criminals are we going to put in charge of our foreign policy? How much more are we going to ask the peoples of the Mid-East to tolerate?

3. Biden not a friend of Democratic Party.

Suprising but true. Virtually a hard core Republican on military matters.

11. I've believed him to be a Repug. plant
Since he wrote the RAVE Act and slipped it into the Amber Alert Bill.

7. This is old news
They had hearings on Negroponte last week.

It was an all around love fest.

Dems & Pubs were unanimous in their praise for him.

8. Was that the house? Because this is the Senate. Harkin was
totally against Negroponte today.

10. No
It was the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

The House does not have a say on judges, treaties, Presidential appointments like the cabinet, etc. That is the job of the Senate.

9. Yes -
and Russ Feingold also rubber stamped John Ashcroft. I still think he's the best US Senator we have. Biden may be far from that, but I think he's overall, one of the good guys.
