Couldn't One Senate Democrat Show Up At Hughes' Confirmation Hearing?

by Steve

Utterly amazing.

Harry Reid's Senate Democrats gave Karen Hughes a pass at her confirmation hearing today. Not one of them showed up. I guess they were all too busy at the Democratic Policy Committee hearing on how the Plame outing damaged the nation's national security, a worthwhile topic no doubt. But couldn't at least one or two of them have questioned Hughes on the many issues she should answer for?

Well, Joe Biden (D-MBNA) likes her, so I guess that is enough for the rest of the caucus.

How pathetic.
