Amazing Statement by Congressman Cleaver
Over at Prime Buzz, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver — who represents Kansas City, in case you didn’t know — is quoted making a simply amazing statement of regret over his recent vote regarding AIG (link via Combest). Apparently, there has been some sort of scandal over bonuses, or some such?
Kidding aside, this reminds me of the time Sen. John Danforth took to the Senate floor to admit he was wrong and change his vote on the flag-burning bill. Whether you agree with these votes or not, Rep. Cleaver’s honesty, candor, and willingness to admit he was wrong is impressive.
