Senate rules.

        If Senate rules permit the Chair of the Foreign Relations Committee

to keep a nomination off its agenda, then so be it.  However, said rule
needs to be changed.

        It would be wise to vote "yes" or "no" on Weld's nomination as an
ambassador to Mexico, in the full Senate.

        Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott  is off base in saying that Weld
did not go about the nomination procedure in the right way, which
probably means that Weld didn't suck up to enough members of the
august Senate.
