Incertus

Is there any possibility at all that an unwritten part of the deal is that these three judges will get votes on the floor and the moderates will shitcan at least one of them? Probably too much to ask.

I don't like this deal--I thought we should have forced the issue all the way and made some people take their stands. We were in a win-win--if the nuclear option failed, we won a biggie; if it passed, and we got control of the Senate and the Presidency in 2008, they couldn't stop anything.

funny you should ask. kevin drum claims that commenter a on his site heard lindsey graham say that one would be defeated. i'll believe it when i see it. i think i'll add an update to the post.

For me, that's about the only thing that would make this deal palatable, and just barely. All three of the judges are horrendous choices and deserve to be filibustered.
