Our sincere appreciation to Romney, Murkowski and Collins for voting your conscience and not the party line. Nopartisanship can move this country forward and make up for the years of party squabbling.
It will never happen in this country, but a multi-party legislature as in a parliamentary system has its merits.

"The vote was 53 to 47, with all Democrats in favor. They were joined by three moderate Republicans, senators Mitt Romney of Utah, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine, who defied deep opposition within their party to support Joe Biden’s nominee. Their support was a welcome result for the White House, which had been intent on securing a bipartisan confirmation."
"A graduate of Harvard and Harvard Law School, Jackson served on the independent US sentencing commission, an agency that develops sentencing guidelines, before becoming a federal judge."
This sure points out why we need more people of color in Congress!
