  •  They loose nothing (none)
    by giving the appearence of being reasonable.  Who's saying she shouldn't go through a very intensive confirmation process?  I don't think any democrats have said that they are giving her a pass.  I certainly wouldn't expect them to.  
    •  Schultz (none)
      On AAR today, Ed Schultz made a similar comment about Harry Reid's nice remarks. Said if Harry had come out immediately negative we'd be labeled again as obstructionists. That is was reasonable to start out with a few nice remarks, but that it didn't mean the hearings would go that way. I don't know.

      •  Considering that the democrats (none)
        did catch some flak for supposedly being against whoever was going to get Bush's first nomination this seems like a wise way to go.

        I'll wait before I pass judgment.  Let's see what they do with this one.

        •  And where did i say they should come out negative? (none)
          I was hoping for NEUTRAL.  If this is strategy, and they actually come out fighting in the hearings then i will gladly admit my mistake.  I just don't see it, based on recent history.
