Good! On any given day, New Hampshire can either be considered the black sheep of New England, or the bedroom for Boston. During the next good economy, migration of liberals from Massachusetts will change this State forever.

I'm glad to hear that some Republicans, like Sen. Gregg, got some sense.

Of course Gregg's got nothing to lose. He' s retiring
09:38 PM on 08/05/2009
Which means he can afford to vote his conscience.

Voinovich is still uncommitted.

The eight republicans voting for her, so far, are:

Lugar (R)
Martinez (R)
Snowe (R)
Collins (R)
Graham (R)
Alexander (R)
Bond (R)
Gregg (R)

I do not like how he backed out of the Secretary of Commerce position. However, Judd Gregg does have a history of working hard in the Senate and does not always go along with the Republicans. Sarah Palin refused to appear on stage with him because he supports a woman's right to choose. He's also not running for his seat again, so he has little to lose politically.
09:25 PM on 08/05/2009
he is A O.K. by me because he is pro-choice.
I vote pro choice.
09:02 PM on 08/05/2009
Gregg can afford to be magnanimous because he is not running for re-election and doesn't have to pander to his base.
09:25 PM on 08/05/2009
I'll bet a lot of rethugs wish they could vote the way they wanted but feel they need to pander to their base.

if republicans don't vote for sotomayer, they will show that what's really important to them is maintaining the status quo, if not turning back time.

they aren't human enough to set aside their prejudices to vote for a Latina woman who is more than qualified in every way to serve as SCOTUS.

this will further hurt the republican party concerning the Hispanic voters.

Who cares what another Republican does.

Hold everything! Don't count out Nebraska Democratic (in name only) Senator E. Benjamin Nelson. He'll cast a no vote.
09:26 PM on 08/05/2009
He's DINO.

They will vote on her appointment on Thursday. There is no way the GOP are going to end the week and start a recess with the news of an Obama nominee winning appointment. No way. They will hold the CARS vote for Fridy. That way they will shut down the Sotomayor news coverage with CARS spin. Bets anyone?

wouldn't surprise me in the least of the republicans continue to obstruct Sotomayer's confirmation.
08:46 PM on 08/05/2009
Apparently, not all Republicans in the Senate are wingnuts...just most of them.
08:53 PM on 08/05/2009
Oh don't worry, they are wignuts, just some know reality when it is in their faces.

Oh, they're all wing nuts......just some of them are closer to reelection and need more publicity than other wing nuts.

You didn't think a one of them actually votes his con science, did you? Hint: they have no such thing.

I predicted a maximum of 10 & a minimum of 5 .. seems it will be over 10 ..
08:54 PM on 08/05/2009
There has already been 8. The only Dem who is holding out is Mark Begich and that is because it would affect his NRA voting record. I say she touches 70 before it is all said and done.
