    We've been holding on to our healthy majority in Congress using the abortion issue, have we?

    Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different outcome.  It doesn't work - its not even an issue with this nomination - so I don't know why we'd expect it to work now.

    Additionally, we've got a lot of Democratic Senators up for re-election and some weak Republican incumbents in states that don't have such clear support of Roe v. Wade.  Montana, North Dakota, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida and Missouri.  We have to think: what would filibustering a nominee because of their position on choice do to Robert Byrd, Kent Conrad or Ben Nelson?

    Making this solely about abortion leaves the three of them with ABSOLUTELY NO cover.  So, they'll cross the aisle - they'll be forced to.

    We need to paint these bastards as anti-Joe Citizen - WHICH THEY ARE - to find some new ground to stand on in this fight, gain some populist support, and give 40 Senators cover.

    ...gotta go...Kennedy is speaking.
