  •  not at all (none)
    If the nomination had gone forward adn the Dems had supported (which would have been a sly move) the american taliban would have been forced to filibuster.

    •  but (none)
      they didn't have to, so they didn't, so there's no issue
      •  sure (none)
        but they would have had to, which is the point.

        •  the point (none)
          is that most people here seem to believe that the miers withdrawal will somehow make the republicans look bad if they try and use the 'up or down' talking point, and i think it won't.  most americans will not make the connection that the republicans would have filibustered (if they would have)
          •  fair point (none)
            most people probably won't see the connection -- still, it points out the de facto veto power weilded by the religious nutcases in the GOP>
