Rice cooked




OH happy day.

Democratic lawmakers on Wednesday subpoenaed Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to testify about a central and later refuted administration justification for the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.


Stevie Wonder could have seen what would come next:

But the administration said it might fight the subpoena, citing a legal doctrine that can shield a president and his aides from having to answer questions from Congress.


Maybe I will finally see some of those "checks and balances" that I heard about.

On a party-line vote of 21-10, the House of Representatives' Oversight and Government Reform Committee approved a subpoena for Rice, which was quickly issued.


Here's hoping. Reuters has the story.
