Chafee Tells All

Former Senator Lincoln Chafee gave an engaging interview last night on Fresh Air with Terry Gross. Chafee gave a good view of what traditional Republicanism is and how the Bush Administration and Republican-controlled Congress walked away from their conservative principles.

It was sad to see Chafee lose last month. He did much to oppose where the current GOP was headed, and I hope he remains to be a conscience within the party.

If you have an hour to kill, please give this a listen.

I say goodbye to Chafee with mixed feelings. A good environmentalist, he was terrible on foreign policy and the war on terror. He's going out on a low note, by blocking John Bolton's re-nomination as U.S. Ambassador to the U.N.
