As expected, the Senate blocks the White House's nominee, Ohio AG Richard Cordray, to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Cordray needed 60 votes but only got 53, with the vote going almost entirely along party lines.

    So, opposition was "bi-partisan" then. Funny, when a Democrat nominee hits a snag, it's "the vote was almost entirely along party lines"...if this guy had been a nominee from a Republican president to something or other, this would have read something along the lines of "nominee faces bi-partisan opposition". Odd how that works.
