First tangible results from the new democratic congress

Appeals court nominees pull names from consideration, Republicans say
    WASHINGTON (AP) — In a concession to the Senate's new Democratic majority, four of President Bush's ¼ appeals court appointees have asked to have their nominations withdrawn, Republican officials said Tuesday.

    These officials said that William Haynes, William Myers and Terrence Boyle had all decided to abandon their quest for confirmation. Another nominee, Mike Wallace, let it be known last month that he, too, had asked Bush to withdraw his nomination.
Oh happy day.
