John Kerry and the Filibuster Follies
I’m just wondering who convinced John Kerry that heading up a lost-cause filibuster against Alito would make him look Presidential.
I suppose the real scenario was Kate Michelman telling him that was the way to raise money from the looney Left. Still. He should be listening to Dick Morris instead.
Hillary will vote for Alito. Her political advisor actually made it to the White House.
UPDATE 2-1: For some reason, the update note I put in here earlier this week that Hillary intended to vote against Alito got lost in cyberspace. In fact, she did vote against him. I did think that she might vote for him as part of her Hillary-the-Moderate campaign. But clearly the raising-money-from-lefty-radicals imperative trumped all.
