Michigan: Levin (D-MI), Nay Stabenow (D-MI), Nay

As to the former - Don't blame me, I voted for Rocky. As to the latter - she'll be going back to Lansing in 2006 if I have any say in the matter.

Michigan has pretty generally always sent evil people to the Senate, but this Levin character seems to be among the worst.

I noticed that about Byrd (D-WV) too. He's 87 and trying to decide about running again next year. If what you say is true, that is great news!~

Who voted for Priscilla Owens

No one, I hope, voted for someone who's not nominated.

(The judge's surname is Owen, not Owens.)

I thought the GOP failed to recruit the best challengers to Stabenow, thus making her retention of the seat likely. I hope this is not the case. One reason I read for the supposedly top-tier candidates not running is that they hope to run for Levin's seat next if he retires.


But anyway, Landrieu voted for Brown, which surprises me because she doesn't have to pretend to not be a liberal again until 2007 at the earliest. None of the other so-called moderate Dems voted for her.

I don't remember who the last good senator was. Griffin maybe? He was the guy Levin took over for the year I was born.(Last Republican was Spence Abraham, but he wasn't that good) The worst in my lifetime was Don Riegle. He's a crook - and was an uberleftist. Carl Lenin's just wrong on everything, as is Debbie Stab-me-now.

Stab can be taken out with a good campaign. Lenin's there till he wants out unless we have a miracle.

How does Iowa stand, generally speaking, when it comes to social issues? I sort of assumed it to be conservative, but Harkin doesn't even try to hide his social liberalism does he? Is it simply a case of him being able to bring home the bacon, as with the Dems in the Dakotas?

The bad news is that Mike Rogers and Candice Miller aren't running. They were our best shots and our A-team.

That said, we still have a shot unless the GOP'ers abandon the race. Keith Butler has a shot if he gets help. He's not Alan Keyes.

Talk about a world upside down. One RHINO votes yea, the other nay, while a lib Rat votes yea. Those Rhino's are just unpredictable and untrustworthy. Haven't a clue what got into Wyden(maybe some backbone?).

They said they would not oppose bringing her to the floor for a vote, not that they would vote to confirm her.

Nay Lieberman (D-CT),

I find this most distressing. I have defended Joe Lieberman on this forum. I flew him in a Learjet and I found him to be a decent man.

He was part of "The Deal"--why would he vote "Nay?"

I guess we finally see what that really means.

Landrieu's vote was probably a polite concession, since I believe Louisiana is in the appellate district where Owen will preside.

As I said, the deal was to bring them to the floor for votes, not to vote to confirm them. The only Dems who voted aye on Owens were Byrd and Landrieu.

It's all over the map, one extreme to the other. The conservatives are very conservative and the liberals are very liberal, and the numbers are pretty even. That's one of many valid reasons we continue to keep a hold on our the first-in-the-nation caucuses.

Lurked way too long, but how would you like to hail from Illinois where you had no vote? Look at the number of States that have two of the socialists 'representing' them. I voted with my feet and now hang my hat in Florida. BTW, the Conservatives down here do know how to vote!

So I heard that we only got 57 votes or whatever.
Can someone please explain to me, who is not that familiar with Senate rules.
It's okay that we didn't get 60 because the Democrats didn't "officially" filibuster?

They voted yesterday 81-18 to invoke cloture, that is, to cut off any filibuster. Today's vote was to actually confirm Owen to the bench.

So Chafee and Stevens are now officially the top RINOs, while Byrd and Landrieu should get a temporary pass.

" Byrd voted yes, shows he's worried about re-election"

I don't think so. Contrary to what we thought we saw, he was not asleep at his desk when Ted Kennedy (D-MA) and Harry Read (Senate Leader-NV) were telling the world that Owens and Brown wanted to take us back to the days of Jim Crow. Old Sheets, Robt. Byrd (KKK-WV) with memories of night rides in his sheet-n-hood and cross burnings believed them and voted accordingly.

Hey Xena,

Do you think that the Democrats feared criticism from women for not confirming these judges (Owen) and Brown (soon to be confirmed)?

I believe this had something to do with "The Deal"--but I wanted your opinion.

Thanks sister, I think it did too.

I am trying to ascertain the mood of Democrats in the wake of this vote. Conservatives are still mad (myself included).

The dynamics of this are still full of 13 curves.

You just don't know where he's going to come out on a given day. I still think he may someday become a Republican.

My friend, I was being sarcastic. Lieberman is not a moderate. Lieberman is very predictable. Lieberman is a balls to the wall liberal. Lieberman's ACU rating for 2003 and 2004 was zero.

Can't get more predictable and liberal than that.

Not sure you're right. He is a Demorat, to be sure, but I get the feeling he's not happy with his Party. He may still entertain some aspirations of leadership within his Party, but his position on several issues is more moderate than most of his colleagues'.

I still feel that someday he'll switch Parties.

Lieberman's voting record over the last two years as rated by the ACU is 0% conservative.

Lieberman, on occasion does talk conservative. Possibly, that's why you might think he is more conservative, but he's -- not.
