The Emerging Dem Strategy on Alito?

This morning, Joe Biden spoke about the Alito nomination -- and hinted that the filibuster was a real possibility.

If you check the transcripts, it's notable that Biden backs away from basing his criticism on Alito's presumed opposition to Roe. Instead, Biden focuses on Alito's supposed misgivings about reapportionment.

Could it be that Biden -- and perhaps Democrats generally -- have realized that their "scare tactics" accusing Republicans of wanting to overturn Roe v. Wade have become of diminished effectiveness?

That may be why Biden instead is trying to raise quasi-racial issues, asking about Alito's commitment to the concept of "one man, one vote." Are the Democrats above a little misleading race baiting? I fear not.

As someone who claims to support family values and limited government do you support the strip search of 10 year old girls without a warrant as alito did?
