  •  but yet Specter killed the Bork nomination (3+ / 0-)

    I wonder what made him OK the later three conservative judges.  Thomas, in particular, has been abysmal on the bench.

    Whatever you do, take care of your shoes.

    •  There were 58 nay votes on Bork (0+ / 0-)

      The Dems, IIRC, had 54 senators at the time.  Biden, Heflin, and others had at least as much, if not more, to do w/ killing that nomination than Specter did.

      Specter, Hatch and Simpson, agreed to serve as the GOP hit team on Prof. Hill in the Thomas hearings.  He deserves considerable "credit" for helping a marginally qualified GOP hack who lied through his teeth get confirmed.

      Some men see things as they are and ask why. I see things that never were and ask why not?
