Rice ends bid for secretary of state, and fight with G.O.P.

Rice ends bid for secretary of state, and fight with G.O.P.

The importance of picking your fights

Others can take from this whatever they will. This is what I take from this episode:

I regret more every day voting for Sen. Lindsey Graham twice and grow more certain that I won't make that mistake again. I did not vote for him because we agreed on everything. I voted for him because he came across as a statesman. That's no longer the case.

In fact, I'm growing more certain that I will vote against him if he faces a primary challenge. Maybe he will pick up extra Tea Party supporters because of actions such as these and that will more than cancel out a vote like mine. If that's what he has been pushing to accomplish the past few years, he needs to be congratulated, because he has succeeded.
