Before I head out for Chicagoland
I though I would link to this piece by Michael Novak on the Specter Judiciary Committee. Apparently, Bill Frist has decided to actually (*gasp*) act like Senate Majority Leader rather than act like the co-chairman of the Senate Glee Club (like two previous Majority Leaders did).
Good on him. Now we will see whether his trust in Specter's word was misplaced.
I'm also glad to see that my Senator, John Cornyn, was one of two hold-outs who put Specter's feet to the fire. Specter initially only wanted to promise that all nominees would get out of his committee. He has since agreed that, not only will those nominees get out of committee, but he will lead the fight for their confirmation on the Senate floor.
We shall see.
