THIS is a good endorsement

I'm still thinking Rick was a 'tard for this, but the endorsement in the Chronicle is SPOT ON.

Over the years, Noriega has worked his way up through the ranks. He has distinguished himself as a soldier in Afghanistan and on the Texas-Mexico border, and as an elected official in Austin. During Hurricane Ike, he performed duty above and beyond the call helping those in need at the George R. Brown Convention Center. He richly deserves a promotion to Washington.

Noriega is showing himself to be the model of an effective Democrat — a centrist, moderate Texas Democrat — in a time when most voters are sick of political extremes. As such, he may one day set the standard for what a strong Texas senator can be.

Rick, stick close to Dodd on financial issues. Oh, and Sen. Bentsen would have voted for the bank recapitalization. Better yet, just call me. Melissa's got the number.
