The Klan Rides Again

CNN reports about the Democratic effort to delay the approval of Condoleezza Rice as Secretary of State.Link. Even the Democrats know that they cannot stop the approval, but it seems they have fallen in love with obstructionism. The most unbelievable element:
Aides said Democrats Barbara Boxer of California and Robert Byrd of West Virginia plan to give long speeches opposing the nomination in an effort to extend the debate until 7 p.m., when the inaugural balls begin.
Do the Democrats know absolutely nothing about appearance and public relations. To co-lead the effort against the first female African-American to be nominated as Secretary of State (and only the second African-American of either sex) the Democrats have chosen a former Grand Dragon of the Klu Klux Klan. Perhaps during the hearing, they should have invited David Duke to appear and speak against her.
