         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.
