Genuine emotion in the Senate

I was truly impressed with Ohio senator George Voinovich's honest and heartful appeal to his colleagues in the senate on the matter of the Bolton nomination. It was refreshing to see something so far removed from the grandstanding and political posturing that usually passes for debate in that institution -- on both sides of the aisle. That Voinovich has aligned himself in opposition to the White House is even more impressive. One wonders what could be accomplished if more of our elected representatives acted out of individual conscience rather than party loyalty.
