  •  Good deal (none)
    Politically this was the best way out. If the nuclear option was passed, woe be the USA.

    If the nuclear option was defeated, and no compromise, then we would be getting hit over the head by the republican spin machine in 2006. All these religious nuts would try and get a super majority.

    But with the compromise, they can't hit us over the head that hard on judges in 06. Some get through, but that there was a deal means that Bush's judges were somewhat problematic becasue some conservatives made a deal.

    And best of all, Bil Frist just got his balls cut off by John McCain. Bush was rebuked in the Senate, there is no other way you can look at it. His mandate is over.

    There was a part of me that wanted to see the nuclear option, it would have been fun to watch the acrimony (I loved chaos). But politically, this is the best way to go for now.
