Hmm....anything happen this week?
Sorry. OK, the death of bin Laden. If anyone wants to argue about whether (and how) it's important, go for it below; I'm not going to be with you.
As far as the 2012 election (and for the other reasons it matters), we also had a pretty good jobs report, and some not at all encouraging other economic reports.
The cloture vote on Jack McConnell, a district judge nominee, was actually a pretty big deal, with eleven Republicans voting yes on cloture, then no on confirmation. That doesn't guarantee that every district court nominee will be confirmed, but it's a very good sign. It's also worth noting that the president is finally nominating judges at a faster pace than they're retiring, too.
So, what did I miss? What do you think mattered this week?
