     These appointments will serve us well, and therefore this "fight" as limited as it is is a welcome one.

       It's hard to understand the mentality of the Senate Democrats, but if you simply get where they're at, lame as that place may be, you'll see that for them this is a big deal.
       Hopefully, they'll take it further because there's a crisis in the Federal judiciary due to the high vacancy rate resulting from Republican obstructionism.
       The Democrats would be justified in taking up the judicial appointments, and "fighting" on that one too, though I surely wouldn't count on it.
