"How could he have given Ginsberg a pass. He did this country a grave disservice."
Keep in mind the Dims had a 57-43 majority in 1993 and the only way the nomination could have been stopped would have been by filibuster, which the dims probably would have nuked then. Dang, now that I think about it, maybe if the Pubs filibustered back then, the Dims would not have had the filibuster now.
Thought-provoking points, but I can't imagine the Pubbies filibustering. EVER.
They should have just flushed Satan-Ginsburg's nomination down the toilet.
I mean come on -- 'General Counsel' for ACLU?? Does a SC nominee get any more liberal than that??
They wouldn't have had to nuke the pubs. Chafee, Sp[ectre, and Snow gladly would've voted to end a filibuster.
