Byrd Swoops In

by Jason Zengerle | August 6, 2009

The ailing and often absent Robert Byrd is making an appearance in the Senate today to vote for Sotomayor. That could bode well for the Dems if the vote is close on any health care legislation. Of course, I say just let Byrd (and Kennedy) tele-vote.
