FYI-ALERT! Rice Nomination Debate

The full Senate has scheduled nine hours of debate for today on the Condi Rice nomination. It is being carried live on C-SPAN2; Bob Byrd and Barbara Boxer (interesting in both the juxtaposition and the alliteration) are leading the Democrats' rhetorical choreography. As I write, Bill Frist is holding forth.

There will be a period of final debate tomorrow morning before she's handed the job. As always, watch the vote.
