Owen, Bolton Confirmations Almost Assured

It seems like the compromise deal reached on monday evening will not only pave the way for embattled U.N. nominee John Bolton's confirmation, it has already allowed a confirmation vote on controversial federal appeals court nominee Priscilla Owen. Owen passed the vote with a 56-43 count, effectively confirming her new judgeship after four years of being held in limbo through the filibuster. Democrats, after this new deal, have softened their stand on a lot of the nominees that Bush has put forth and have definitely made it easier for confirmation hearings to be held. Whether this deal will benefit Republicans or Democrats remains to be seen. And most likely when there is a Supreme Court vacancy the strengh of this agreement will be tested severely.
