    I won't go that far. But I will say these preemptive attacks on from the left (yours is far from the first such diary) on someone the President hasn't even nominated yet are tiresome and counterproductive. Do you think helping further the right's offensive, baseless attacks on her is somehow going to cause the president to go, "oh so sorry," dump her and appoint a fantastic enlightened Kucinichian peacenik to suit the purity progressives among us?

    No. IF pressure were sufficient to cause him to change course (and I think he will do what he wants, pressure or no), since the loudest voices are on the right, we'd probably get a more intransigent hawk.

    Jon Husted is a dick.

    •  But you are not an advocate for silence, right? (5+ / 0-)

      I mean, if we don't like someone (the little we), then shouldn't we speak up? Don't we have some kind of obligation not only to do so, but do so honestly (irregardless of this diarist)?

      I don't like Rice because of her investments. I may not like other potential candidates for other reasons or maybe for the same reasons.

      Surely you are not suggesting that we must be silent in our opposition? Am I not understanding what you mean?
