No real answers on Capitol Hill

There was no resolution in Wednesday's hearing, no formal referral for perjury, no absolution of Roger Clemens or Brian McNamee, no indictments. What we saw, in effect, was a publicly funded focus group debate for five hours.

Henry Waxman, the committee chairman, thinks McNamee is telling the truth in this matter. And so does Elijah Cummings, the Democrat from Maryland, who thunderously reminded Clemens, over and over, that he was under oath.

Dan Burton, the Republican from Indiana, thinks McNamee is a purveyor of lies. Christopher Shays of Connecticut told McNamee he is a drug dealer.
