The WSJ’s Evan Perez reports today that Senator Patrick J. Leahy, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, will vote against the nomination of Michael Mukasey as U.S. Attorney General.  Something about waterboarding.

Senator Leahy’s opposition doesn’t kill the nomination, but Blawgletter wouldn’t call it good news for Mr. Mukasey.
