On Capitol Hill, Republicans have blocked the Senate's no-confidence vote on Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.
Republican lawmakers rejected a symbolic Democratic effort to prod Gonzales from office despite blistering criticism from lawmakers in both parties.
The 53-to-38 vote to move the resolution to full debate fell seven short of the 60 required. Republicans did not defend Gonzales, but most voted against moving the resolution ahead.
Short of impeachment, Congress has no authority to oust a Cabinet member. Gonzales dismissed the rhetorical ruckus on Capitol Hill, and President Bush continued to stand by his longtime friend and legal adviser.
