Wasting Time: Democrat Style

Senator McCain has nicely elucidated the frustration that many (myself included) have felt over the treatment of Condoleezza Rice during her Sec/State confirmation hearings:
On the Senate floor Wednesday, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., suggested Democrats are sore losers. Rice had enough votes to win confirmation, as even her Democratic critics acknowledge, McCain said.

"So I wonder why we are starting this new Congress with a protracted debate about a foregone conclusion," McCain said. Since Rice is qualified for the job, he said, "I can only conclude that we are doing this for no other reason than because of lingering bitterness over the outcome of the election."
And, to a lesser extent, lingering concern over the 2008 election.
