Jedi--according to this column by William Safire, the defection of Benedict A. Jeffords and subsequent realignment of committee chairs may be to your liking on the subject of trade and to my liking on the subject of campaign finance:

<John McCain will be replaced at Commerce by Fritz Hollings; that will harm campaign finance reform and free trade, though it may help privacy and economic nationalism.>

And that idiot McCain won't have a committee chair from which to promote his mischief. He'll have to do it all out in the hall. There may be a pony in this thing somewhere after all.

/s/ S.T.
