Fait Accompli or Support?

So, Kerry and Boxer voted against Rice in committee. Why did the other Democrats vote for? I can think of only two reasons: 1) they knew their protest votes wouldn't change things...which makes it all the safer to vote your protest, by the way, if you're so inclined towards principle; or, 2) they figure Bush needs to get laid in order to calm his insecurity-activated testosterone wars and Rice is the closest chance the world has to calming down the chimp. Just a hunch.
