By a 62-35 vote, the Senate . . . approved the nomination of former Yale Law School dean Harold Koh for the position of legal advisor to the State Department. . . .
Conservatives have strenuously opposed the nomination because of, among other things, Koh’s belief that the Supreme Court should look to international bodies such as the United Nations and even European courts to help interpret the U.S. Constitution. Koh, an open homosexual, has also been actively involved in the push to legalize same-sex “marriage.”
