Dems, Please Listen to Teddy!

According to the NY Times, there is a conflict within Democratic ranks about how to treat the Roberts nomination.

The interest groups and senators like Teddy Kennedy want to go to the mattresses and fight. Other, more intelligent senators (like former Senator John Breaux) understand how that will look to regular Americans -- who see a superbly qualified and decent man in Judge Roberts.

As a partisan Republican, of course I hope they choose the Teddy/NARAL path. If they do, pull up a chair & pop up the corn, and let the games begin! Let's watch the Democrats alienate regular America.

Note: The story says that "[Senator] Feingold [D-WI] said that he considered a Supreme Court nominee too important to evaluate in only political terms ...." Hmm. Someone on the Dem side as worried about intellect and integrity (the sole criteria applied to Justices Breyer and Ginsburg) as he is about Roe? Color me shocked.
