A look ahead to the Senate confirmation hearings

Friday, January 02, 2009

Senate confirmation hearings begin next week with Ted Kennedy returning to the Senate to take the lead. We’re taking a look ahead to what we should be keeping our eyes on as Hillary Rodham Clinton, Tom Daschle, Eric Holder and others face their friends (and sometimes enemies) the United States Senators. The Takeaway is joined by New York Times writer David Herszenhorn.
