Alito Confirmed

Well, as expected, Samuel Alito has been confirmed by the judiciary committee. It was 10 to 8, right along party lines because not one liberal could accept his answers and only wished to see him as they wanted...a conservative looking to change Roe v. Wade and executive powers.

Now the vote will go to the full senate and will probably go along party lines there as well. There might be a couple of Democrats voting for him, but the Democrats of the judiciary committee have been calling for all Democrats to vote "No" on Alito's appointment.

There is no reason for a filibuster, but I would not put it past them as they have been causing problems through this whole process. We shall have to see what happens in the Senate which the vote may not come until next Tuesday. They certainly like to drag things out!
