At the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations this week: Clinton on 1/23, Kerry on 1/24

The outgoing and the incoming Secretary of State will both be at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee this week. It looks like both events will be presided by the presumptive incoming chairman of the SFRC, Robert Menendez of New Jersey. Senator Menendez is not/not our pick for next chairman (oh god, that one) but that’s beyond our magical powers.  All we can do is hope that he does not mess up so badly that he makes it into the front pages of both The Daily Caller and Gawker, again.

  1. My apologies for the gruesome imagery. And you’re welcome!

    Headless chicken! Running all over the globe. That’s a pretty good description of our foreign policy. No peace. No democracy. No reconstruction. (from Ann Jones in Kabul, 2006)http://bit.ly/14okJPn
    Thanks again for the recap on the hearings!

  3. Dan – Sorry, I skipped that. Not quite back, running around like a headless chicken. Will be in and out. Thanks for checking in.

    Glad you are back domani spero! I nominate Elliott Engel (D-NY) for “most intense and transparent reading of his talking points in a daytime drama.”
    I couldn’t figure out what Sen. Kerry was really saying but I was super impressed with how long he can take to say it. I’ll keep checking back here to find out what’s actually happening.

  5. Sorry, I meant to write Dan, boo me!

  6. Hope you had an HD view, Dave.

    I have my popcorn ready except it’s too early to pop it without waking up the rest of the house. Somebody sharp should be “live blogging” this one.

Tell us what you think, but play nice.
