The (Not So) "Little Triumvirate"

In the NYTimes today, Sheryl Gay Stolberg profiles Senators John Warner, John McCain, and Lindsey Graham, who have emerged as the three most prominent Republican senators on issues related to the prosecution of the war in Iraq and the treatment of detainees. It's a little bit gushy, but since I deeply admire and respect all three of these guys, I'll take a little gush. Stolberg discusses the important links between the three and how their relationshiops have been shaped, as well as the pressure that's been brought to bear on them by members of the Administration and others in Congress to just shut up and walk the line.

Thankfully, neither Warner, McCain, nor Graham is likely to do that anytime soon.
