Sotomayor Confirmed, 68-31

Oh well, we knew that was coming.

Nine Republicans voted for her; Alexander, Bond, Collins, Graham, Gregg, Lugar, Martinez, Snowe and Voinivich.

All 31 no's were from Republicans.Not a single Democrat was willing to stand up and vote against such an obviously unqualified Supreme Court Justice.

This actually doesn't change the Court much, since she's replacing Souter. But I have a feeling that if Obama has thr opportunity to fill any more vacancies, we're likely to get someone even further left - Harold Koh, perhaps.

Elections have consequences..
