Enough talk about our own legislature. David Broder
offers a piece on the faces that will be missing when Congress reconvenes this week. Among the most notable are Obama
, of course. Sens. Hillary Clinton and Ken Salazar will also be off to fill major cabinet positions. I think most notably though, Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel
will be gone. Hagel was never afraid to stand up to the Bush administration and his common sense and independence would have served this Congress, and the new administration, well.
