Carol Platt Liebau: Schadenfreude Alert!

Schadenfreude Alert!

Am I supposed to feel sorry for the Democrats after reading this? Apparently, the poor little things can't come up with a strategy on how to use their Roberts vote to maximize their power and influence over the process for the upcoming Bush nominee.

Vote solidly against Roberts? OK. Then it's clear that their opposition is meaningless -- the country will know that any Bush nominee will be reliably and mindlessly obstructed by the Dems.

Vote largely in favor of Roberts? Fine. Then all the next nominee has to do is mimic Roberts' approach and responses to questions and it will be hard for the Dems to explain why Roberts, why not the second nominee.

There is, I think, one approach that would actually work well for the Democrats -- but they're not going to read about it here.

Here's hoping the all vote against him.........Or even better, refuse to vote.

Stand up for what they are, PATHETIC!!

And here's hoping the (D)'s filibuster the next nominee........So they can get squashed in the court of public opinion, and procedurally by the Republicans in the Senate.

That is making a big assumption the Senate Republicans have the testicular fortitude to squash them.....Which is a dubious assumption I know.
