All this optimism was based not on who would be the likely nominees, but on who would be the one to pick such nominees
Not really, at least not for me. Bush made a very specific campaign promise to nominate folks like Scalia and Thomas. He should expect us to see if his nominees actually measure up to that standard.

You know, I'm getting REALLY tired of reading the phony quote that the President "promised he would nominate judges like Thomas and Scalia". Since each of you have made similar comments tonight, I challenge any one of you to find when the President said that. Let me help you out...Al Gore actually said what you say Bush said, so don't use that as your reference. What the President DID promise is that he would nominate conservative judges that will not legislate from the bench. Everyone who actually knows Meirs says she will be just that kind of judge. You are accusing Bush of breaking a promise he never made, and assuming he is not keeping the promise he did make. I'm calling your bluff...either point out when he said what you claim he said, or stop repeating a lie.
