Loretta Lynch, after being kept waiting in the wings by the Senate for 5 1/2 months, was confirmed Thursday as the first African American woman to serve as attorney general, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Lynch was approved, 56-43, one of the narrowest margins in history for an attorney general nominee.

I hope she does well, wish her the best. She appears very well qualified other then siding with Obama on the Presidential "decrees" issue. I hope she will be a fair and independent A.G. with Justice in mind and not politics like Holder. Unless she is a race baiting anti conservative like Holder. All I can say is that Holder has done more to hurt Law Enforcement and the respect for the Law then any other A.G. in my lifetime. I pray everyday that the Lord keeps all Supreme court Justices alive until after the 2016 election r Holder will be appointed to the Supreme court by Obama for all the dirty work he has done to harm Conservatives, Law Enforcement and the Country. Good riddance Holder, fade into history as the worst A.G. ever, that is what you earned.

I would hope that she will be her own person and do what is right but bottom line is she still answers to the President!

If only the attacks would stop! Eric Holder wasn't anti conservative. He was a man who believed in the system of justice for all. He stood for civil liberties and had zero tolerance for injustices. I tend to laugh when i see someone referencing how conservative they are. What is a conservative? We get so tempered at the thought of someone tendering with our traditions or political posture or religious stance. If God read our hearts, what would He see in there? We can't be that conservative if we have hatred for one another. Or that conservative if we feel so negative toward another. Loretta Lynch was held hostage for 5 months by an attitude of dislike toward Obama, but yet we still find it necessary to attack Eric Holder? How about Mitch McConnell? or John Boehner? You see, we can't just pick and choose when its okay to be conservative. Be conservative all the way and for all the right the reasons. Eric Holder was anti injustice! Let's end the prejudice & stand for what's right equally
