Hopefully, Senator Lugar’s decision to support Dawn Johnsen will be the end of the very silly battle over her nomination.  Interestingly, Lugar also enthusiastically endorsed the nomination of Judge David Hamilton to the Seventh Circuit, so he may become a goto person to push back against right-wing attempts to obstruct Obama’s nominees.

It will be interesting to see how Lugar behaves when a nominee who is not from his home state is the subject of a filibuster threat.
