    How about a headline like "Bi-partisian vote blocks Obama Judicial Nominee"?

    THAT would be more accurate.
    Since Obama wasn't in the voting demographic, it can't be him that didn't vote. Who is missing?
    On edit: Found it. Orin Hatch voted present.

    Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said in remarks on the Senate floor that Halligan’s representation of New York in a case against gun manufacturers and her membership on a New York City Bar Association panel that issued a report criticizing Bush administration detainee policy had given him concerns about Halligan’s “judicial philosophy and her approach to interpreting the Constitution.”

    “Based on her record, I simply do not believe she will be able to put aside her long record of liberal advocacy and be a fair and impartial jurist,” Grassley said.
    Exactly! There is no compromise with these matters. Either a judicial nominee argues based upon the Constitution or they don't get in. Too bad Marxists. Move to another country and rule away. Stay out of OUR so far still free country.
