Idiots.

ETA: Maybe not idiots. Some like Senator Kennedy probably weren't there.

11. I don't think four abstained
Hillary wouldn't vote -- so that's one down

MN only has one senator now -- so that's two down.

Ted K is sick -- that's three down

Where was Byrd. I know he was under the weather yesterday.

33. What a "moran..."
After all that, well, what a "moran." Maybe he didn't want to look bad? Or maybe some of his donors called and informed him they were her donors as well. It's Washington. Same old, same old.

34. Cornyn has said all along he would vote for her .........
but, at this point, I don't know if he did or not.
It will show up pretty soon, just be patient.

Props to the most excellent Schroeder at People Get Ready:

also the originator of the sobriquet "Ass Monkey of the Planet" for President Obama's predecessor. :P

Didn't Clinton support the war?

18. Obama is the president and he will set the policy
not Hillary. Hillary is smart and competent, which is why Obama selected her and why she was approved.

23. Within limits. . .
Part of the deal for Hillary taking the job was a measure of autonomy. I don't think
she'd cotton too well to being bossed around by anyone. She will play a major role in
setting the policy.

And if our President is smart, he'll respect her intelligence and skills. I don't think that
Mr. Obama wants Hillary to put a "Colin Powell" on him and leave.

21. Actually......
all it showed was how petty they can be and how impotent they are now that the Dems are in control and the country has given them a huge mandate to govern.

24. I guess these two assholes didn't get the time to be nice memo.
They might as well have painted a target on their ugly pusses.

Don't they know there is a new sheriff in town?

35. It was nice of the Senate to give the opposition a chance to get itself organized
I guess Cornyn just wanted to get in the papers bashing a Clinton before voting yes

38. As long as she remembers she has to follow Obama's orders, fine.
I highly doubt HE wants to "obliterate" Iran.

43. Just curious, did she get to vote?
Did she vote? Was she allowed to vote, but abstained, or was she not allowed to vote on her own confirmation? I wondered how that would work.
