No surprise here. The Senate voted overwhelmingly to keep Joe Lieberman as chairman of the Homeland Security Committee.
Well, at least we had two full weeks to feel good about ourselves. Now it's back to business as usual in the Senate.
I have no desire to express outrage or disappointment. This is the way things are, and 220 years of Senate tradition doesn't change overnight.
Perseverance is key. Keep plugging away. We'll win some, we'll lose some others; yet, we can always strive to perfect a government that works for the people, rather than for themselves.
Congratulations are owed to Senator Lieberman. He plays the game better than anyone alive.
(yes, as A.C.R. pointed out, the headline said "ucual". Blogger doesn't have the auto spellchecker feature turned on for the title field apparently)
