    Yep, this is the first battle of many to come. The thing is, Bolton is pure pond scum. It surprises me in a way because Gates seems assured of getting rummy's job.

    i always admire Chafee, he is a great senator, such a waste for GOP, he would be a great democrat senator, current GOP is totally inconsistence with his idea, he should jump ship ASAP.

    I wonder if Chafee would be considering this change if he'd won reelection.

    Furthermore, I wonder if he'd switch if he won and the GOP lost the Senate anyway, at the expense of another seat.

    I believe he would even if he had won, but would be later, and slower, RI is going blue, and GOP is more and more intolerant for him. there really no reason for him to stay there.

    lets all write email to him ask him to switch party, so when Jack Reed retire, he would come back, Sen. Reed is almost 70, might retire in 09.

    I don't know his positions on a lot of things. I know he's anti-war, but in other areas he could turn out to be just another Lieberman.

    Still, if they think it's worthwhile, I hope the Democratic leadership will make overtures to Chaffee to show him that he would be welcome.

    Sorry to see Chaffee go, he was one of the good ones. Hoping even if he doesn't jump ship, he gets back in the game somewhere. Not sorry to see Bolton go. He's the worst person for his job, and there's no way he'll be confirmed. No way.

    Maybe they should see if Chaffee wants the job. :D
