With the status of politics today I don't think we'll ever se a unanimous SOTUS confirmation again. Who was the last? I know Scalia was confirmed 98-0 and one of the two Senators who didn't vote was Barry Goldwater.

So is this his clever way of revealing that Roberts will not be filibustered?

Yes. President Bush, in the spirit of bipartisanship, should choose someone all the Dems can get behind.

I'd love to hear his reasons. Perhaps he can claim Roberts is too smart? Or maybe Roberts knows what the Constitution says (and we cannot have a Justice who possesses such dangerous knowledge.)

If there are a significant amount of Democrat "No's". Then appointing a Janice Rogers Brown will be that much easier. It will look like the Dems are crying wolf for anyone Bush appoints

I think this is the first of many. The Democrats will oppose any nominee. I predicted 59-40-1 on the Senate floor with a straight party line vote out of committee. You know who will not be able to find the Senate floor.

Hope I'm proven wrong. Bush's poll numbers have given the Democrats new life and they consider him vulnerable on ALL fronts, even Supreme Court nominees.

Ask me if I care...I don't......Reid is inconsequential and an obstructionist like 90% of the rest of his party.

Actually, I am surprised. I didn't think even he could be that stupid. Now Bush shouldn't feel bound to nominate a "moderate". If they can't vote for Roberts they won't vote for anyone he nominates, so why try to placate them. Come on Janice Rogers Brown.

The L.A. Times doesn't share your pessimism. :-) I wonder if the editors will now run a story blasting Harry Reid for petty partisanship? :-)
