Just as the president is ready to address the nation on Iraq, Joe Biden next week begins three weeks of hearings on the war. On the committee, Biden and Democrats Christopher Dodd (Conn.), John Kerry (Mass.), Russell Feingold (Wis.) and Barack Obama (Ill.) will compete for intensity in criticizing a troop surge. But on the Republican side of the committee, no less probing scrutiny of Bush’s proposals will come from Chuck Hagel.
*** Damn, what a fine group of heavy hitters! I can’t wait to get audio from this group! Obama will be lucky if there’s anything left after Biden,JK, and Russ get done grilling whoever has to speak for the administration. Hell, if the hearings are public I might have to take that much wanted trip to DC 😉 Light ’em up John!
