25. Right. The only way the Dems could "offer to confirm"
is if they actually fillibustered. But they wouldn't be able to fullibuster unless they whipped those "moderates" back into line. How likely is it that Holy Joe would want to hold up sailing Roberts through just to give John Kerry an open shot at Rove? Not very, unfortunately.
