By a vote of 98 - 0 the Senate confirmed the first openly gay person to a federal judgeship. Todd Hughes will now sit on the U.S. Court of Appeals for The Federal Circuit.
I am surprised that there was not only no opposition but no drama around this nomination. No real protests, no histrionics, no filibustering, no Ted Cruz idiocy and no people praying and weeping in the gallery.
Congratulations to Judge Ted Hughes.
