"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??

The same principal applies then as now. The disgraced impeached scumbag president had the right to get his leftist judge. Our president has the right to get his conservative judge. The lesson is that we had better keep winning elections until we can get a 9-0 court.

I agree the Pubs would have never filibustered, but just how could 43 of them stopped Ginsburg?
