The Senate panel indeed voted to recommend to have Sonia Sotomayor confirmed. The panel voted 13-6 in favor of her. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina was the only Republican to vote yes. Ah, Republicans are so negative these days. Cheer up, fellas. Now it goes to the full Senate for an overwhelmingly likely confirmation. Personally, apologies to Pat Buchanan, but we need more of the wise latina perspective, no matter who built this country. Thoughts?
