Sen. Ken Salazar, one of the chief brokers of the nuclear option compromise, cast his vote against Bush judical nominee Priscilla Owen today. Yesterday, he went on the attack again against the radical right:
"I don't want us to become another Saudi Arabia or another Iraq, and I think that people who are part of that radical right would have our country go in that direction," Salazar said in an interview with MSNBC.
