Dems vote effort on Rumsfeld fizzling out

Shockingly, Senate Democrats' efforts to bring up a non-binding, yea-or-nay vote on Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld are dying on the vine.

This was a time-waste of the highest order from word go, as the vote was to be non-binding, and even the Dems agreed that it had nothing to do with the legislation at hand - a Pentagon spending bill.

I know why stuff like this happens, I understand the political gamesmanship behind it, and I'm not a fan of Rummy's, but it still gives me tired-head to read these stories. Don't we have more important things to do than to waste energy on debates which all involved already agree won't change anything?
