Sore losers.

The sore losers in the Democratic party have won a weak, symbolic victory. In what can only be an attempt to tarnish the President's inauguration, Senate Democrats have successfully stalled the confirmation of Condoliza Rice as Secretary of State. Traditionally the secretary of State and the Attorney General are sworn in shortly after the President. This is because according to the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, the secretary of State and attorney General are both in the line of succession if anything happens to the President.

So, congratulations on your small, pyrrhic victory folks. All you are doing is chipping away at your own credibility.
