Wrote the four House Chairmen in a letter to Bush, released today and reported by Reuters. According to them,“The nominee should be deeply committed to American values, but need not have an American address. The global pool of talent is deep, and we should make it clear that the United States believes that the best nominee could come from anywhere,” the Democratic congressmen said.
“There has been much discussion of whether or not the nominee should or must be an American. We think that misses the point,” read the letter signed by House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank, House Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey, House Ways and Means Chairman Charles Rangel and House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Tom Lantos.
Let’s see if GWH will take heed from the Democrats.
