Does it matter that Pudzer is out?

Not really. Jim Newell captures it:
It should be pointed out, too, that Puzder’s loss of Republican support has little to do with his record of pulverizing low-wage workers as a boss. That was the whole point of considering him! And they would’ve gotten away, too, if it wasn’t for that Oprah. Ah, well. Trump should have no difficulty finding another rich person with a horrendous record on, and future ambitions for, the degradation of working conditions to put in charge of American labor policy.
Sure, I suppose there’s some moral victory in one of Trump’s worst nominees not getting through. But this is hardly a victory for sensible Labor policies.
