    back from the terrible twosome while they pitched their public fit.  She's had nothing of substance to add, just more stamping of feet and repeating "NO."  Not very smart at all, especially if the ones causing all the uproar end up making themselves irrelevant and taking her down with them.

    •  Still, it makes sense (0+ / 0-)

      as a way to get her into the public eye right now.

      Clearly, McCain & Graham think they've got their snaggly teeth into something...and they'll milk it for all it's worth.

      Ayotte can just keep saying, "Hmmmm, Benghazi, bad stuff happened, I'm concerned" and it will shine a light on her, within the party base.

      •  Oh no, Ayotte has taken the plunge. (0+ / 0-)

        She's not just saying "Hmmmm, Benghazi...."  she's saying, "I'll put a hold on Rice's nomination."  

        She's put her plans for her political reputation firmly in the hands of John McCain and Lindsey Graham.  That should be scary as hell to her.  She better have a Plan B.
