Senate Judiciary Committee rules state that one member of the minority party has to vote for the nominee. It does not matter if every DemoRat member votes for her it would take one of the guys below to also vote for her.
Orrin G. Hatch
Charles E. Grassley
He may or may not have been voted “most likely to succeed” by his high school class, but on this list, I think Lindsey Graham could be voted “most likely to cave”, but others will jealously want the title too: Cornyn, Hatch, etc. Maybe even Kyl is trying to attract Hispanic votes in AZ.
If/When the nomination gets to the floor of the Senate, what are the chances of it being voted down there? Does it take a simple majority?
Hatch and Graham are the problem. Either one votes yes, its history.
This should be easy enough to hold up. Kyl MIGHT be a problem, but I doubt it.
