The senate has approved Julius Genachowski, nominated by President Barack Obama, as the new chairman of the Federal Communications Commission. Along with Genachowski, the senate also confirmed Republican Commissioner Robert McDowell for a second term. The senate has yet to confirm Mignon Clyburn, from South Carolina, to fill one of the Democrat seats of the FCC. Genachowski will take over for acting Chairman Michael Copps, who has filled the seat since Kevin Martin's departure from the FCC in January.

Hey Wall Street Journal, that's Democratic seat not Democrat seat. We can sure tell you are part of Fox now..
harharharharhar.... oh wait your joke wasn't funny
I'm not sure that is actually correct. The seat may be reserved for democrats (or "democratic politicians") to sit in it, but the seat itself is not "democratic". e.g., it's a "dog house", not a "dogly house".
