Is confirmed 53-40 with only seven Democrats voting yes(and many were not the usual Red state moderates). An just in case you were wondering the pace of confirmations for judicial appointments has grounded to a halt. Should Hillary become president I’m sure the pace will pick up and we’ll see much clamoring that fillibuster rules are inappropriate for judicial nominees. Elections have consequences after all.
UPDATE: Rudy puts out a statement congratulating his friend and colleague, whom he would certainly prefer voters see as more representative of his choice in associates than Kerik. Powerline remarks that the confirmation totals say far more about the state of the Democratic party than about Mukasey.
