    "WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday approved President Barack Obama's nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court, all but ensuring she will become the court's first Hispanic justice. Just one Republican joined all 12 Democrats on the panel to recommend that the full Senate confirm Sotomayor, 55, a federal judge for the past 17 years.
    The Democratic-controlled full Senate seems certain to give its final approval before beginning a month-long recess on August 7 so Sotomayor can join the nine-member court before it begins a special September session."

    This will probably get approved in the second phase of voting as well.
