And what were those mistatements???

From the WBBM News Radio 78 website

WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin was among the 13 senators voting Wednesday against the confirmation of Condoleeza Rice. Durbin said in a statement, "In the end I could not excuse Dr. Rice's repeated misstatements about the war in Iraq and her opposition to my amendment unequivocally condemning the use of torture. America has lost a voice of moderation with the retirement of Colin Powell. We can only hope that the responsibility of leadership will inspire Rice to follow his example.”

U.S. Sen. Barak Obama voted for the confirmation of Rice.
