The New York Times reports Senator Arlene Specter (PA) the ranking Republican on the Judiciary Committee has launched an "attack" on Eric Holder, the nominee for U.S. Attorney General. Specter acknowledges Holder's "outstanding academic and professional record," but has concerns with respect to matters related to "courage" and "character." Democrats respond that Holder has "integrity and independence," but assume everything will come down to the fact that they control the Senate. See article here.
