13-5 Vote for Roberts in the Judiciary Committee

The talking is almost (finally) over, and when it ends the Senate Judiciary Committee will recommend the confirmation of Judge John Roberts as the next Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court. Three Democrats (Leahy, Kohl and Feingold) will join all the Republicans in voting for Roberts. Five Democrats (Biden, Kennedy, Feinstein, Schumer and Durbin) will vote against Roberts.

Hmmm, as Sam Brownback (R-KS) just pulled a young girl with Downs Syndrome to his side to point out that over half of the fetuses who are diagnosed with that are aborted, I think I'm going to turn off the coverage before he feels a needs to start holding up bloody medical instruments in front of the cameras and point them at this "beautfiul young girl who does a lot of modeling".

Anyway, 13-5, that'll be the tally.
