Missing faces

Posted By on Sun, Jan 4, 2009 at 11:06 AM

Enough talk about our own legislature.  David Broder offers a piece on the faces that will be missing when Congress reconvenes this week.  Among the most notable are Obama and Biden, of course.  Sens. Hillary Clinton and Ken Salazar will also be off to fill major cabinet positions.  I think most notably though, Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel will be gone.  Hagel was never afraid to stand up to the Bush administration and his common sense and independence would have served this Congress, and the new administration, well.
