THE PLANK DECEMBER 3, 2009
Several lawmakers mentioned the months of deliberation, which resulted in what Rep. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) called a policy with "a little something for everybody."
"There's an old adage that a camel is a horse designed by committee," Flake said at the House hearing. "In many ways, I think this looks to be a policy designed by committee."
"Camels are very sturdy animals," Clinton replied. "They are patient and may be plodding, but they eventually get to where you hope they will arrive."
