[CIA]

Hayden Approved 78-15.

Well, that wasn't much of a fight. Dems apparently were not as alarmed as I on Michael Hayden, with only a paltry 14 voting against. Give Arlen Specter his props--he was the sole Republican to dissent.

Dems in opposition:
Evan Bayh, Maria Cantwell, Hillary Clinton, Mark Dayton, Christopher Dodd, Byron Dorgan, Dick Durbin, Russell Feingold, Tom Harkin, Edward Kennedy, John Kerry, Robert Menéndez, Barack Obama, Ron Wyden.

I should go on a rant here, but I just don't have the energy. It is interesting to note, however, that four of five Senators with presidential hopes (italicized) voted against. Only Joe Biden voted for.

They count on that. Which isn't to say that you don't have every right to be exhausted. I know that I am.
