Silvio Slips Through

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has survived a confidence vote in both chambers of the Italian legislature. Berlusconi's margin of victory in the lower house was three votes. Analysts caution that Berlusconi will still have a difficult time governing, but that at least we will continue to read stories about hooker parties and shady deals.
