Conservatives kill Gonzales no-confidence vote.

"Conservatives kill Gonzales no-confidence vote."

Moments ago, the no-confidence measure on Alberto Gonzales came up seven votes short of a procedural hurdle, passing 53-38. The vote was largely down party lines, except for seven Republicans who supported the measure (Coleman, Collins, Hagel, Smith, Snowe, Specter, Sununu) and Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-CT), who opposed it.


UPDATE: Complete roll call vote is HERE.
