DeVos Confirmed, Opening Path for Sessions

This bit of Senate Kabuki theater really got the hopes up of several left-leaning people I know, who thought they had a chance of beating DeVos just because the Republican leadership chose to protect the maximal number of their Senators from the consequences of voting for her.

Nope. Lucy & the football.

Now that Jeff Session's vote is no longer needed immediately, I guess he'll be confirmed soon too.

I've noticed Trump hasn't lost any of his nominees (at least, not yet).

Most presidents would have given up on DeVos, for example, once serious opposition to her surfaced. She would have withdrawn, and a new nominee would have been named who was more acceptable to the Senate.

I'm not sure whether this is significant but it's something I've noticed. He doesn't pull back in the face of opposition.
