Boozman joins small opposition to gay judge

The Senate confirmed President Obama's nomination of Paul Oetken to a federal judgeship, the first openly gay man to be confirmed, though not the first gay federal judge. In a time when most nominations are enduring delays and opposition, it's notable that Oetken was confirmed 80-13.

Dr. No John Boozman didn't say why he joined 12 other Republicans in voting against this nomination. He just did. What do you think?

Sen. Mark Pryor voted for confirmation.
