Money raised for an anticipated Supreme Court nominee battle is obscene on all sides. It was spooky to see staunch conservatives threatening the President with their coffer–in addition to the expected uproar from the “other side.”
Democrats are having a hard time rallying around opposition for nominee John Roberts. While it’s clear that Judge Roberts is a conservative, that is not a surprise. Would anyone think that the President would make the same nomination as a Democratic Prez? But just as conservatives were not jazzed about Justice Ginsberg, Dems need to remember that when the Republicans are in charge, they get to choose.
So instead of raising and spending money to dig up and defeat the current nominee, how’s about using that money and energy to be in the position to name the next Justice. Winning is not the only reward.
