key ones are Ben Nelson voted against her. He's someone who the republicans are letting off, now we should defeat him in 2006. Chafee voted nay. Hillary did too. Lieberman voted no. Byrd voted yes, shows he's worried about re-election.
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.
I thought he was retiring?
As usual, Iowans have no vote in the U.S. Senate.
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!~
|Present - 1|
|Not Voting - 1|
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.
Thank you. That's a little easier for my old eyes to read.
sorry about that
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?
Excuse me, but I thought Liberman was one of the 14 who were not going to oppose Owen?
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.
The Dems are keeping the approval numbers under 60 for obvious reasons.
They said they would not oppose bringing her to the floor for a vote, not that they would vote to confirm her.
I think you're misreading it. Wyden voted no.
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.
He probably just woke up from his nap and didn't know what the vote was all about.
I was hoping to quietly correct my goof before it was detected, but, you are just too fast. See post #21
The unformatted version was very confusing...
Lugar of Ind. voted Nay? That doesn't sound right.
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!
Byrd must have voted on the prevailing side so he could ask for a revote later. :-)
Lugar (R-IN), Yea
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.
That was your ONE time! Don't let it happen again. ;-)
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.
Is there anyone in the Senate more vain and more stupid than Jeffords?
I think the threat of pressure from women and from minority groups had a LOT to do with it.
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.
Hey--that's a name for another band---"13 Curves."
A lot more Senators voted for cloture than were in on the 'deal'. Curious how so many that found Owen to be extremely dangerous have flipped.
Yep, Lieberman the moderate, LOL!
For the life of me, I can't figure that guy out. His votes are probably the most unpredictable in the whole Senate.
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.
Update me on her possible opponents. Do you still have a favorite among them?
