Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., president pro tempore of the Senate, walks to the floor for the vote to end debate on the confirmation of Chuck Hagel to become defense secretary, at the Capitol in Washington, Thursday, Feb. 14, 2013. The cloture vote fell short of the 60 yeas required to break the Republican filibuster, leaving Hagel’s nomination in limbo as Congress leaves for recess. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
