— Regarding the Senate Foreign Relations Committee's consideration of Sam Fox -- who donated money to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth -- to be the next ambassador to Belgium, apparently John Kerry has been whipping today's vote. There are three Democratic presidential candidates on the committee: Biden, Dodd, and Obama. Yet Fox could survive. Two Democrats/Independents on the committee support him publicly, including Joe Lieberman and Claire McCaskill.
