Well.... I would like to hope that she would withdrawal her nomination before the committee hearings...

My bet though...as stubborn as Bush is....

She will be voted down by the Senate with a 53-47 margin after Thanksgiving.

I'm betting on either a piano or a safe mysteriously falling out of the sky onto her head.

She will be passed and become a Supreme Court Justice. She will then go on to interpret the Constitution strictly and without bias. All we can expect from a justice is to do their job...There are no bells and whistles needed. Just a dedication to the Constitution and the intent of it's writers.

Better luck next time

If the Senate has any sense (which it doesn't) they'll vote her down.

Steve said...

Off topic... but finally a court gets it right...

I saw that...in Kansas, no less! Unanimous! And the ruling stated, "Moral disapproval of a group cannot be a legitimate state interest."

Once it becomes obvious that the support for her nomination isn't there, she'll withdraw because of 'health' reasons.

Nathan said...

She'll be confirmed, but only on the condition that she not be allowed to leave a paper trail while serving her term as a Supreme Court Justice. She's in, what a waste.

Esther, how is it good if she is voted down. You're not depending on a more conservative nominee after she's turned down, are you? Sounds like a gamble. The Republican President being bruised over a nomination is never good for the conservative movement! Neither is it good for the country if his approval rating falls further as would result from such. All We Are Saying...
Is Give Bush a Chance!

Andy said...

Give Bush a chance? Oh for God's sake, how many chances does he get? Little Cicero, are you for real? I mean, honestly. You crack me up.

Remember Celebrity Death Match, which I believe aired on MTV (where else)? Miers v. Ginsburg. (Oh, forgive me for saying that, as I adore Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and I cried when my alma mater gave her an honorary doctorate.)
