The Democratic Party is so full of contradictions they can't even approve their own nominations now. The Democrat-controlled Senate just rejected Obama's nomination of Debo Adegbile to head the US Justice Depts civil rights division, because ... well, he's a qualified civil rights attorney.
The best quotes, as usual, were from Republi-cons: that's what you get for helping a cop-killer, slap in the face of law enforcement, blah, blah, blah. But seven Dems are what killed the nomination.
Yeah, that Obama, it's all his fault, right? Well, he has been a major disappointment, but as to the question of why he doesn't do more -- we need look no further than his own party.
