  •  without this compromise (none)
    Janice Rogers Brown would be headed for the Supreme Court. That isn't going to happen now and that is a big deal.

    Moreover, pay attention to the language in the deal that emphasizes the advise in advise and consent. This is a strong signal from these repubs that bush should consult prior to a nomination. In their press conference, the compromisers said that they would be talking with each other, especially if the Dems thought there were "extraordinary" circumstances.

    As a result of that, if bush were to nominate a Brown or Owen or Pryor, without consulting, I think you can expect several of these repubs to be mighty irritated.

    They've all worked their ass off for this compromise. They didn't do it for it to mean nothing. And bush can violate it by not consulting with both repubs and Dems.

    This administration will give you plenty of reason to be dispirited and angry. Let yourself enjoy a moment when we stopped their radical agenda. Because, no matter what you think, that is what has happened.  

    We need not stride resolutely towards catastrophe, merely because those are the marching orders. -- Noam Chomsky
