    But this is some FORESIGHT - Rehnquist is sick and leaving the court, this issue will be front and center - we need to play it right.

    06 is cirtical belive it or not - we need to start the MO with some pcikups.  I ahven't studiied, but opporetunities generally abound in year 6 of an Administration.

      foresight for james, but not for you.

      Somebody suggested earlier that the dems just punt on Rhenquist.  He's conservative anyways and filibustering his replacement will use up "political capital."  What's your opinion on our actions w /re to judges?

      no haikus now,
      join your local democratic party.
      There are fights in 2005 coming up.

        It's not even a question of filibustering - puit the nominee through the ringer -make the GOP lay their cards on the table and vote no.

        Or filibuster if REALLY egregious.  But roll over - NO fucking way.  Make the GOP take a public hit at the least.

        for 06.

        I certainly missed this issue and the 5 million crazies Rove had stashed away.
