President Obama's first judicial nominee may finally get a vote amid a flurry of stories about the pace of judicial nominations. Judge David Hamilton was nominated to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit last March and quickly drew public support from both Indiana Senators Evan Bayh and Richard Lugar. His nomination was reported out of the Senate Judiciary Committee by a 12-7 vote last spring. Judge Hamilton's nomination then met conservative obstruction, including a letter from Senator Jeff Sessions urging Republicans to filibuster his nomination. Reports indicate that conservatives are split on whether to filibuster. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid filed for a cloture vote last week, which may come as soon as tomorrow.
