      The repugs public comments will state that their opposition is based only on her very liberal record and has nothing to do with her sexual preference. They will argue that it is the Dems who are making this an issue, not them and that the Dems are advocates for her because of her sexual preference. I think it is much too easy for the repugs to take the road that Senator Obama took that legal philosophy alone is an appropriate reason to filibuster a nominee. I think this is all moot as I don't believe the President wants this fight, at this time, with so much on his plate and a midterm in November. Even if the nominee is someone who can be easily confirmed it will take all of the oxygen out of the Senate from June until the summer recess in August.
