    I'm certainly not going to advocate not going to battle when we need to go to battle, and when it's smart to do so.

    I disagree with acbonin that this nomination was a victory. But I also caution against making that battle look like a temper tantrum. We need to fight smarter on this one.

    •  I agree with you - not advocating the (none)
      "Screaming MiMi" approach at all.  

      But I do think we must respond to this nomination because Roberts is a VERY conservative candidate.  Much more conservative than the vast majority of the public.  Americans deserve to have that information unvarnished.

      For me the key is that we have a right to know just what we are getting.  We also have a right to petition the Senate if we don't like what we see.  There is no returning this one to the store if you have buyers remorse so best get it straight now.
