Robert Novak notes:
Shortly after Sen. Elizabeth Dole of North Carolina was elected Senate Republican campaign chairman with support from 28 senators, she was approached by 29 senators saying they had voted for her in the secret ballot. The Senate Republican Conference elected Dole, 28 to 27, over Sen. Norm Coleman of Minnesota. Just one week before the vote, Coleman had 32 senators personally committed to him. Coleman thought Dole’s late-starting campaign had 19 votes at the most.
Ladies and gentlemen, your Republican Senate! Boy, did Chuck D ever have that one right. If they can’t walk the straight and narrow even in the small things, what do you think they’re doing with regards to the big ones, like selling out national security?
