The Republican Party's presumptive nominee for president, Senator McCain, is locked in a disagreement with a Democratic senator from California, Dianne Feinstein, over whether to permit Chevron to do business with the regime in Rangoon. One of them is taking a hard-line human-rights stand against the military junta in Burma. The other is carrying water for the interests of America's second largest oil company.Mr. McCain's stance has been to require Chevron to sell its stake in a large gas field that is widely considered the single most important source of income for Burma's regime, one of the world's most repressive. Ms. Feinstein, who represents the state in which Chevron is headquartered, is seeking to allow the company to hold on to its stake in the gas field.
No doubt Olberman is getting ready to name Feinsten the worst person in the world.
Oh and if you search the Washington Post...
