By a vote of 62 to 35, the Senate has just confirmed the nomination of Harold Koh to be State Department legal adviser.
I very much hope that I turn out to be wrong about how much damage Koh will be able to inflict.
Update: I’m reliably informed that five Republicans voted for Koh: Collins, Lugar, Martinez, Snowe, and Voinovich. (The roll-call vote should be available here shortly.)
