  •  I'm reminded (none)
    I'm reminded of what makes a good compromise.  If neither side likes it very much, then it must be a good compromise.  I think the fourteen had this kind of compromise.  Neither side was all that happy, but it was something they could live with.

    What am I hearing about Roberts?  I hear some very conservative, very neocon Republicans saying unreservedly that he is a 'fantastic' choice, that they are overjoyed, that he is a perfect selection.  The only thing I've heard from the Democratic side is Reid saying that the President has put forth someone with suitable judicial credentials. That's hardly ringing praise, more like 'That's....interesting.'

    I'm also not all that thrilled with what sounded like a hidden signal to the troops, the oft-repeated 'will not legislate from the bench', a symbol that this was Bush's offering to the far right crowd.

    I think I'd feel better if those in the other camp were a little less enthusiastic about him.
