Some of you all might recall the fight Arlen Spector faced to retain his chairmanship of the Judiciary committee, after the 2004 election. I recall a lot of folks more than a little baffled over Bush’s support for Spector, too. But I wonder, had Spector not deftly held sway in that committee, would we be seeing this resounding result today?

Personally, I think not.

Resounding result? Only four Democrats voted for the most experienced nominee of the last 70 years. I think we could have reached a similar result with just about anyone as the chairman.

I said, "Personally, I think not." Abd, quite frankly, Alito could have ganered only 51 and it would be a "resounding" victory in my eyes! :)

spell check what I write before I post it.

And where is Fung? Too downcast to be expressive? Haha. What great news.
