    there was a "loyal" opposition because often honest debate on policies can illuminate potential issues.  

    Unfortunately, that is not what we have.  These people aren't objecting to policies or principles, but simply want to "bring Obama down a peg," or grab some publicity for their own small ends.  They know that they can't win, but can only delay and sully the promise of a better future.

    Meanwhile Chris Mathews is taking the no votes on Hillary Clinton's nomination seriously and actually discussing possible objections with Republican Sen Isakson and Sen Stabenow.  Enough already.  Appointed Cabinet members are not elected by the public and don't need the same degree of disclosure, as they advise the President - they don't make laws.
