Allen's Presidential Aspirations Benefited

Here is a great article by Hugh Hewitt about the ramifications of the deal by the 14 Senators that seems to have accomplished little or nothing. In the meantime, Priscilla Owens has been approved and John Bolton has been filibustered despite promises by Reid that he would not be.

Hewitt considers the presidential aspirations of those parties involved from the Republican side:
On the presidential front, it wasn't only McCain who lost big with the deal. So did Senator Bill Frist, at least for the moment, as legitimate questions are being raised about his ability to run the country when he cannot even corral his own caucus. Nebraska's Chuck Hagel contributed to the collapse of the caucus with his reprise of Hamlet on every Sunday show that would have him. Winners include Virginia's George Allen and Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney.
