  •  IIRC, they didn't get 30 votes on filibuster (4+ / 0-)

    Kerry tried to organize one, but it was a half-assed attempt--he was at Davos at the time when any meaningful filibuster needed to be organized.  Alito was the nomination to contest--Roberts is telegenic, he was replacing Rehnquist, and he didn't have much of a paper trail.  Alito isn't telegenic, he was replacing O'C, and he had an extensive paper trail.  People here were trying to stiffen the spines of Dem senators, but, as usual, the "professional left" was ignored in favor of the dry powder brigade.

    Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?
