    Controversial DOJ nominee fails to clear test vote

    Obama the socialist is shot down with when trying to appoint a nominee who defended a cop killer.....Even a few Democrats were wise enough to vote no.

    What's the purpose of a test vote? Sounds a lot like Card Check.

    Not that I care a feather or fig about this nominee but isn't it an old american custom to provide defense for the accused? Lawyers are usually defending criminals so should they become ineligible for doing so?

    My response has ZERO to do with my political views.

    instead of going through the entire procedure of a real vote they do a test vote to see if they can overcome the filibuster.
    in this case they couldn't. so there is no need to proceed further.

    plus there is about 2 or 3 days of interviews and questions by the senate. so they save a bunch of time by doing a test vote.

    Maggie if you ccan't pass a test vote then I believe the bill will never get to the floor of the Senate.
