    "All 55 Republicans were united in their support. They were joined by 22 Democrats and one independent senator. Twenty-two Democrats voted no.
    "I hope I am proven wrong about John Roberts," said Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Massachusetts, in a floor speech before the vote. "I have been proven wrong before on my confirmation votes. I regret my vote to confirm Justice Scalia, even though he too, like Judge Roberts was a nice person and a very smart Harvard lawyer."

    Kennedy was also among five Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee to vote against Roberts. Others voting in opposition included Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, Dianne Feinstein of California and Evan Bayh from Roberts' home state of Indiana.

    Democrats voting yes included Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Ron Wyden of Oregon and Max Baucus of Montana."

    Write this down. Kennedy admitted he was wrong about Scalia. Will he really admit to being wrong about Roberts? I'm not holding my breath.

    If Kennedy wer to run for office in any state but Mass. he would lose.He is nothing but a party hack who leans totally to the left and is only exceeded in his liberality by his partner John Kerry.
    Hillary certainly did herself no good in trying to move more to the center,she just proved she is another party hack with a big name.

    The fact that Kennedy regrets his vote for hte most constitutional justice on the court is very telling. If every judge were like Scalia, we would actually have a constitutional government.
