Although largely buried in the papers today, Dennis Shedd was confirmed to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals last night. When Strom Thurmond stood to offer his words of support for his former staffer Dennis Shedd, the Senate gave him a standing ovation--a more fitting response for the elderly Senator than the broken promises he received from Leahy. Shedds confirmation follows that of Judge Michael McConnell, who was confirmed to the Tenth Circuit by voice vote last Friday night. What a difference an election makes.
