  •  Poser (none)
    The poser for me is why?  Byrd has never been a liberal, but his first principle has always been defense of the Senate - its prerogatives, its privileges, and the its key role in the checks and balances derived from separation of powers.  In this way, he was a true conservative, not a radical like the Bushists.  I would have thought he would be the safest of votes against the monarchist Alito.

    Byrd must be a poser.

    Liberty and justice for all
