Hey, Barbara Boxer: Move on

1boxer.jpg The Sleuth blog run by WaPo’s Mary Ann Akers has an interesting item about Sen. Barbara Boxer’s snit fit over former Rep. James Rogan’s (R-Calif.) nomination to the federal bench. Akers reports that Boxer’s office admitted that she’s blocking the nomination because she can’t get over Rogan’s role as one of the House impeachment managers during the Clinton years.

Bill Clinton doesn’t hold a grudge against Rogan. Neither does Clinton water-carrier Lanny Davis, who told The Sleuth blog this:

Supporters of Rogan’s judicial nomination include, of all people, Lanny Davis, the former special counsel to former President Clinton, and another lawyer in the Clinton White House counsel’s office. He’s disappointed to learn Boxer is blocking Rogan over the impeachment trial.

Davis says the Clintons are forgiving, live-and-let-live kind of folks, so why can’t Boxer be? “I think that Senator Boxer is also a gracious person who, if she got to know Jim Rogan since the impeachment days as I have, would reconsider her opposition,” he says. “This is a man who would make a great judge.”

Boxer’s press aide told Akers:

Even if his cordial correspondence with Rogan over the years, some of it handwritten, means that Clinton himself is willing to forgive his impeacher, Boxer certainly isn’t ready to reward Rogan with a plum lifetime judicial appointment.

“Congressman Rogan was one of the most enthusiastic backers of impeachment — he thought President Clinton had committed high crimes and misdemeanors,” says Boxer spokeswoman Natalie Ravitz. “The Senate certainly disagreed with that conclusion, as did Senator Boxer.”

Someone needs to, you know, move on.

Remember:

Democrats are not about getting even; Democrats are about getting results.

— Nancy Pelosi, Nov. 8, 2006
