Summers Turns to Fall?

Hurrah. NYT tonight reports 3 key Democratic Senators will vote to oppose Larry Summers for the Fed, throwing his nomination in (further) doubt.  They are Sherrod Brown, Jon Tester and Jeff Merkley.
Republicans, too, are wary of Mr. Summers. Senator John Cornyn of Texas, the No. 2 Senate Republican, and Senator Pat Roberts of Kansas have both said that they would not vote for Mr. Summers. In August, Mr. Roberts said, “I wouldn’t want Larry Summers to mow my yard.”
