UPDATED: Fred Comments; Southwick gets out of Judiciary Committee!

I don't care for Dianne Feinstein much, but at least she got this one right. The fact that her vote is "news" is a testament to just how few and far between are Senators and Congressmen which cross over partisan lines these days. (h/t Conservative Grapevine)

This is good news for Southwick, but he's not out of the woods yet; he still has to win the floor vote. Call your Senator and urge an "Aye" vote.

UPDATE: Like clockwork, the Web-savvy Fred Thompson weighs in:
Friends, some good news to report. Today, with the support of a single Democratic Senator, Dianne Feinstein of California, Judge Leslie Southwick’s nomination was passed by the Senate Judiciary Committee on a 10-9 vote. The full Senate must still act on the nomination, so only the first part of the battle is won. There remains more to do before Judge Southwick is confirmed by the full Senate. Still, given how hard-fought this nomination has been and how his opponents sought to demonize Judge Southwick, today’s action is welcome news.
