Judiciary panel approves Mukasey

Michael Mukasey nomination has been approved out of committee despite all the drama surrounding it. It was approved by a vote of 11-8. Why? Simple, the president stated he would not send another attorney General appointee to congress. So, they looked for an out and got it with the assurances of Mukasey, that if congress passed a law against waterboarding, he would enforce it. They know they are not going to get that law passed, but they took their out in this political stand off.

I predict he will be approved by the Senate.
