Looks like 5 Repubs (even though Slade Gorton voted like John McCain votes) and 5 demoncRAT members. Staffers look like 2 demoncRATS and 1 Repub.

Kerry and Ben-Veniste are slime of the lowest sort. Neither one of them attempted to interupt or talk over Clark, but wouldn't let Rice answer anything in full. After accusing Bush of "cherry-picking" intelligence, they attempted to "cherry-pick" her testimony.

MOeft Prime Minister Branko Crvenkovski said he will quit as prime minister and may withdraw from politics if he fails to succeed late President Boris Trajkovski in elections next week.

The election on April 14 was scheduled after the death of peacemaker head of state Trajkovski in a plane crash in southwestern Bosnia on February 26.

Opinion polls show Social Democrats leader Crvenkovski is favourite.

"If I'm defeated, I will withdraw from ministerial office and as president of the party, and probably from active politics, because it would show that my policy doesn't have the support of voters," he said in a televised election debate on Wednesday.

Crvenkovski, 41, joined the presidential race in March, just a few days before he submitted the Balkan country's official bid to join the European Union. His Social Democrats regained power in a general election in 2002.

The latest opinion poll gave Crvenkovski 21.1 percent of the vote and 13.2 percent to his nearest rival, Sasko Kedev of the main opposition party, the centre-right VMRO-DPMNE, with almost a third of voters undecided.

Two other candidates are also competing to become Macedonia's third head of state since independence from the former Yugoslavia in 1991.The president can temporarily block legislation, but otherwise the post is largely ceremonial.

Trajkovski, however, displayed how the president's limited powers could exert vital leverage at a time of national danger. With the help of NATO and the EU, his mediation pulled Macedonia back from the brink of civil war in 2001 when ethnic Albanian guerrillas clashed with troops led by a rightwing nationalist government.

TURNOUT KEY

The election needs a 50 percent turnout for it to be deemed valid. Any failure to reach that could create political turmoil in a country still struggling to overcome the legacy of its ethnic conflict three years ago, analysts said.

"It's very important that Macedonia elects a new president and that the elections are successful," one envoy said.

Crvenkovski, a political veteran who was also prime minister from 1992 to 1998, has told supporters in the election campaign that he can guarantee Macedonia will be peaceful and stable and become a member of the EU and of NATO.

Main challenger Kedev, a heart surgeon, began a his political career only in 2002 when he was elected to parliament.

The two other candidates, representing the 25 percent ethnic Albanian minority in the country of two million, are running mainly to test their popularity in the community.

With four candidates in the race, Crvenkovski is unlikely to win the 50 percent needed for an outright victory in the first round, forcing a second vote two weeks later.

Huh? Where did this come from?

>>I'm glad she's on our side!<<

I was thinking the same thing! Dang, the woman's impressive.

Roehmer takes the phonetic pronunciation of his name too seriously. He was just uncivilized.

And, who was whining? Bob Kerrey? "That's not fair!" Wah!

And Ben-Veniste! His mama oughta slap him.

And why was the TRIXPOTUS allowed to testify in private, and not dragged out in public?

It's very revealing that when Dr. Rice testified in private, that some members of the Commission didn't bother to attend.

What I find OUTRAGEOUS and now seemingly invisible both by the 911 Commission and ALL of the mainstream media and press as well as all cabletv news shows is the FACT that ONLY George W Bush and his administration is being picked apart about a 7 1/2 month timeline. PDB's, internal memos, Presidential findings blah blah blah. However NOTHING like this for the 8 years of inaction in the Clinton Administration. What about those PDB's etc? How in heavens name can GW be culpable if WJC is NOT?

Even Brit Hume's show says NOTHING, ZIP, ZERO, NADA about WJC only about GW BUSH. How did this 911 panel investigation become ONLY about the BUSH administration??

My favorite part. :)

KERREY: Dr. Clarke, in the spirit of further declassification...

RICE: Sir, with all...

KERREY: The spirit...

RICE: I don't think I look like Dick Clarke, but...

(LAUGHTER)

KERREY: Dr. Rice, excuse me.

RICE: Thank you.

Must be something in your system , browser, buffers, I don't find it in my document that I have in my system, course maybe I am looking at my buffers.

If anyone else sees it, then there might be a problem on the FR system.

The loony left on the committee were grandstanding for the partisan media and it worked ~ every quote was edited in a way to make GWB look bad.

We are winning ~ the bad guys are losing ~ trolls, terrorists, democrats and the mainstream media are sad ~ very sad!

~~ Bush/Cheney 2004 ~~

LOL, I was wondering the same thing. I just figured I was out of the loop on something. Glad someone else noticed it.

The section you found is definately not connected to the article.
