Conservatives Seem Happy

This is the first Supreme Court nomination hearing in the age of the blogosphere. I am delighted that conservatives seem happy with Judge Robert's asnswers -- and vastly reassured.

But I would repeat the concern I noted last night: Let's not parse the brilliance of his answers to the point where we provide a road map for Democratic followups!

Busy morning . . . more later this afternoon.

Here's hoping the Dem Senators continue to filibuster their own 30 minutes....The more they talk, the better. The less Roberts has to talk the better.
