Witness, the CBC's (now rejected) candidate of choice for chairman of the intelligence committee, Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fl.) upon learning that the post wouid not be his:
This institution is organic. Many opportunities are ever-present and changing. …
Our nation's national security is far more important than my professional security.
Best of all, I will be seeking better and bigger opportunities in a Democratic Congress. There is much to be accomplished and little time to re-set this nation's economic and spiritual compass. I look forward to working with our new Speaker of the House and all of my colleagues to see that we do this at once.
Sorry, haters, God is not finished with me yet.
