I listened to much of the hearings on the radio and I must admit I agree with this approval. Bush actually made a good decision/appointment for once in his life. Gates answered most of the questions intelligently and honestly. The moment he said he did not think we were winning the war in Iraq, i knew the guy would not be one of Dumbya's yesmen. I may not agree with all of his positions, but at least he made some sense and appeared competent and determined to make changes in Iraq. I can respect that and apparently so do the Dems.
Now how long before Bush wakes up and fires the guy or will he simply ignore all his ideas?
