    look at the weasel words from the diarist's link:

    Separately, a Democrat familiar with the panel's deliberations said Mukasey may not get the 10 committee votes his nomination needs to be reported to the Senate floor with a favorable recommendation unless he says, in effect, that waterboarding is torture.

    That tells me that if he doesn't agree, they'll send him to the floor with no recommendation and he'll be confirmed.  PR will be satisfied in Leahy's mind and the pretzelnit will be happy because his choice was confirmed.

    A learning experience is one of those things that says, 'You know that thing you just did? Don't do that.' Douglas Adams
