When Sen. John E. Sununu (R-N.H.) saw reporters approaching him last week, he took off in a sprint, determined to say as little as possible about a nonbinding resolution opposing President Bush's troop-escalation plan, which is expected to come before the Senate today.
"You know where I stand," the senator, who is considered politically vulnerable back home, said repeatedly as he fled down stairways at the Capitol. "I'm still looking."
Sununu is the fastest senator, having run an impressive 20-minute 3-mile race. That's a skill that'll come in handy as he continues running away from his unpopular record and those who try to call him on it.
Update: Sorry for the wierdness. I shouldn't go around overwriting posts...
