16. That makes a lot of sense and sounds just like Rove & Co.
But allow me to take this scenario one step further: Senate Democrats block Lieberman's confirmation. If I were the Senate Minority leader that's exactly what I would do, despite the possibility that this would be a Pandora's box that would lead to his defection to the repuke party.
