What a country. 

10 years ago TODAY, Congressman Ray LaHood from Illinois gaveled an extraordinary vote. From the Speaker’s chair in the House of Representatives, he presided over the impeachment of President. William Jefferson Clinton.

Today, President-elect Obama is preparing to formally announce his pick for Secretary of Transportation: none other than Congressman Ray LaHood from Illinois.

I’m sure this must warm the hearts of all those Hillary Clinton supporters, watching their hero share*that* cabinet table.
